The Reconquista, known as Operation: Black Eden during the Global War, was the military restoration of colonial governments loyal to Jaime IV of Franco-Spain following the defeat of the Holy Alliance in the Great War and during the Global War during which royalist armies were able to gain the upper hand in the war. The term makes an analogy to the medieval Reconquista, in which Christian forces retook the Iberian Peninsula.

After the Great War, Brazil, New Granada, Peru, and Cuba became independent, but not recognised by the Franco-Spanish Holy Alliance. After the military dictatorship ended in Franco-Spain in 1959, the restored king, Jaime IV, declared the developments in the Americas illegal and sent armies to quell the areas still in rebellion. Franco-Spain concentrated on rebuilding its economy and military and securing Peru and Cuba from 1960 to 1965. During 1965 it started making moves to recapture what it had lost in South America, calling on it's native allies and Britain for aid. The invasion of New Granada in 1970 quickly brought the territory back into the Alliance. Only Brazil was able to gain full independence, due to the German Union supporting the country and any military action would have escalated the conflict into an other global war. While Britain sent aid, Jaime IV was too busy dealing with the economy and internal conflict to get too involved in this misadventure.

When the Global War broke out, the United Brazilian Republic invaded the Franco-Spanish viceroyalties, with their main force attacking Gran Colombia. Although having the German Fifth Air Fleet and satellite support, Franco-Spanish was able to resist the attack and plans for the invasion of Brazil were revised. On June 22, 1991, the Holy Alliance launched a massive air bombing across the Brazilian Atlantic coast followed by an large airborne assault from Peru and Argentina into west Brazil. After two years of fighting in the cities and jungles, Brazil finally surrender on 5 March 1993.
