"I don't know why they came back to this jungle, but we'll put 'em down again."
—Army General

The Second Battle of Death Jungle was a engagement fought between the UNSC and Insurrectionists forces over what the 1st Marine Regiment called Death Jungle.

BackgroundEdit

The first battle caught the Marine 1st Regiment for 7 days, effectively trapping them.

☀A UNSC mounted patrol hit an IED, and stumbled into an Insurrectionist convoy. Although the patrol was destroyed, it provided valuable intelligence for the UNSC counter attack.

BattleEdit

"Kilo1-2, this is Kilo 1-1. Large number of innies are assaulting us, need fire support on our position, danger close!"
—Kilo1-2's last transmission.

Not much is known about the actual deployment of troops into the battle other than it was slow an ineffective. The battle lasted several weeks in the dense jungles. On the 17 day of fighting, rebel forces flanked the UNSC troops and managed to completely surround and cut off UNSC supply lines. After another week of fierce fighting, Brigadier General Alexander led a successful counterattack against the Insurrectionist lines and managed to break through, though he himself was killed in during combat with rebels. The fighting continued for two more days until all forces could be extracted.
