The Battle of Draco III was fought on the planet of Draco III some time during 2545.

Battle[edit | edit source]

The Covenant, after arriving in system, wasted no time in quickly and easily defeating UNSC forces, whilst reserving a special fate for the survivors. The Covenant herded civilians together, and had them torn apart by ravenous Unggoy and Kig-Yar. The SPARTAN-IIs watched all of this through satellite linkup and were sent to rescue any remaining civilians. By the time the Spartans arrived, however, there was no one left to rescue. The SPARTANs proceeded to slaughter the remaining Covenant forces in a retaliatory action, technically "winning" the battle. The battle particularly scarred John-117 because of the horrific losses.[2][3][4]

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Edward Buck learned of the battle after emerging from cryo-sleep above the colony of Hardscrabble, and was devastated at the loss of his family and friends on his home planet.[5]
