SUMMARY

The Battle for Alluvion was a major conflict in the Human-Covenant War that took place in the Bhaakto system some time in 2542.  UNSC forces were initially able to fend off the Covenant forces, and managed to protect the colony Alluvion from destruction.  The arrival of a Covenant support fleet a few weeks into the battle ultimately led to the loss of the colony and the glassing of the surface.
