Battle After Battle (Japanese: 連戦) is the 50th episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.


Yang Wen-li successfully raids the supply lines of the Imperial fleet. Next, Yang defeats Karl Robert Steinmetz's fleet near a black hole and wards off the reinforcement fleet led by Helmut Lennenkampf. Reinhard von Lohengramm is furious when he receives news about those losses. Wolfgang Mittermeyer and Oskar von Reuenthal realise that they will have to launch a large offensive against Yang soon if they hope to win before morale and supplies drop to dangerous levels. Yang defeats August Samuel Wahlen's fleet by baiting it with rigged supply pods, then igniting the pods when the Wahlen Fleet approaches them to retrieve them. Wahlen's failure enrages Reinhard even more and Yang's guerilla warfare tactics fill the Imperial forces with uncertainty as they attempt in vain to speculate where Yang will appear next. An attack on Heinessen is vetoed by both Reinhard and his subordinate admirals. The only remaining option is to lure the Yang Fleet out to an open encounter with Reinhard as bait.

Background informationEdit

The Japanese saying 背水の陣 which is used in the dialogue by Karl Robert Steinmetz's vice fleet commander Klusenstern before the start of the Battle of the Black Hole is a reference to the Chinese Han dynasty general Han Xin and his tactic at the Battle of Jingxing, which also led rise to the Chinese saying 背水一戰.
