The First Battle of Torress was an engagement between the UNSC and Insurrectionist forces during Operation: TREBUCHET.

BattleEdit

Torress didn't have much strategic value, it is unclear why Commander Elizibeth Knight commenced a Blitz attack in hopes to quickly take the city.

AftermathEdit

The UNSC forces, not content with the result of the battle would return in the Second Battle of Torress.

The surviving 66 soldiers were chased by Rebel forces for days until they stumbled upon part of the 53rd armored division that happened to be patrolling that area.
