AMF on Outland Operations

Operations Applesmash and Pigkill were the guerrilla offensives undertaken by a series of highly trained and motivated NVA active service units, the most daring and resourceful men and women the revolutionaries had. Their purpose was to shut down two of the main American centers of power, New York and Washington, D.C. Once it had become clear that the NVA and the Party now had a sufficient infrastructure to establish a government in the Northwest after independence had been won, the decision had been made by the Army Council to take the fight right into the belly of the Beast. The message was simple: there would be no business as usual until the Pacific Northwest was free and white.
