The Batarian August Uprising was a major operation by the Batarians to liberate their colonized planet from Axis of Empires. The Batarian Uprising was timed to coincide with the Allies approaching the planet and the retreat of German forces. However, the Allied advance stopped short, enabling the Axis to regroup and liberate the planet while defeating the Batarian resistance, which fought for the entire month with little outside support. The Batarian August Uprising was the largest single military effort taken by any resistance movement during the First Multiverse War. Ultimately, the uprising was ended with the Batarian Monitor, a weapon built by Deathshead. It has also been said that this Uprising is the where most Batarians joined Coalition of Independent States. Although the exact number of casualties remains unknown, it is estimated that about 516,000 million members of the Batarians were killed and about 46 million badly wounded. In addition, between 3 billion Batarian civilians died, mostly from mass executions. Axis casualties totalled over 48,000 million soldiers killed and missing, and 29,000 wounded. While the Combines estimated around 2 Billion were killed and over 48 Million badly wounded in total.
