The Invasion of Ireland, or Operation Target Dynamo was a short but deadly war fought in 1985.
Ireland was becoming an important regional power in the 1980s. They were allied with England and signed many treaties, often military ones. In 1983, Ireland developed an atomic bomb. The Irish socialist government (led by radical militants, aka terrorists) showed off its atomic weapons and threatened to use them if necessary. World powers feared independent Ireland would change the balance.
Buildup to war
Secret meetings held by the French and Germans discussed the possibility of invading ireland. This was the only time France and Germany sat at a table working together since the 1860s. Several countries agreed to invade Ireland, but only if the Irish atomic weapons could be "neutralized".
Coalition forces, (France, Germany, Austria and Russia) prepare troops for imminent fighting.
On September 27, French bombers blow up the Irish atomic weapons storage, causing lots of chaos and confusion.
On the morning of September 29, 250,000 troops are landed by sea near several strategic areas. On September 30, 138,000 troops are parachuted into southern Ireland.
