Invasion of the Imperial Territory (Japanese: 帝国領侵攻) is the 12th episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.
In the Free Planets Alliance, the capture of Iserlohn Fortress has intoxicated the public, the military and the politicians. It is now possible to invade the Galactic Empire from Iserlohn, and many people think it is time to conclude the crusade against tyranny. In a High Council meeting, Secretary of the Treasury João Rebelo and Secretary of Human Resources Huang Rui think it is better to sign a peace treaty because the economy in on the verge of collapse, but Royal Sanford, the Supreme Chairman, explains that they will lose the next election unless they achieve a substantial military victory, so the High Council decides to invade the Empire; only Job Trunicht sides with Rebelo and Huang. The invasion plan is drafted by Commodore Andrew Falk, an ambitious man so sure of the righteousness of the war that he discards any objections, especially those made by Yang, as siding with the enemy. The Free Planet Alliance will send a force of 8 fleets, comprising of 30 million men and 200,000 spaceships, under the overall command of Fleet Admiral Lasalle Lobos, with Admiral Dwight Greenhill as second-in-command. Meanwhile in Fezzan, Adrian Rubinsky warns the Imperial High Commissioner Jochen von Remscheid that the Alliance is planning a full scale invasion of the Empire.
"We have a noble obligation to overthrow the Galactic Empire; it is our duty to save the human race from the menace of their oppression. This is no time to become intoxicated with cheap humanitarianism."
