And so ends the detailed record of 

Cyrus Eterna Augustus, Ayatollah of Persia

                With the Persian colony on Alpha Centauri, the Persians put the full weight and power of their worldly Holy Empire to the destruction of the Sioux. Spies continually flowed into Siouxland with the sole mission of disrupting their nuclear program. Meanwhile, a massive force of conventional and stealth units was assembled. In 1964 the Persian invasion began. The Sioux defense was formidable, but attrition took its toll. In 1983 the last free Sioux city, Cedar Creek, fell to the Holy Howitzers of Persia.

                Russia fought alongside their old allies, but were faced with a Persian strategy of containment. There were countless naval battles, but never could the Russians land troops outside their hemisphere.

                Elizabeth was virtually irrelevant. Her navy helped keep the Sioux from expanding, but her land and air forces were rarely in Siouxland, and they took no cities.
