The Harvest Campaign was a series of engagements during the early years of the Human-Covenant War, lasting from 2525 to 2531. Fought near and on the partially razed world of Harvest, the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant Empire committed major resources in their struggle to claim the planet. After years of battle and tremendous losses on both sides, the Covenant finally quit Epsilon Indi entirely and withdrew from Harvest in mid-2531, allowing an exhausted United Nations Space Command to declare victory.
