Iserlohn Captured! (Japanese: イゼルローン攻略！) is the 7th episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.
On 14 May 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE), after infiltrating Iserlohn Fortress, Rosen Ritter commander Walter von Schönkopf gains access to Iserlohn's command centre. Once inside, he takes the fortress commander hostage, allowing the Rosen Ritter to seize control and enables the 13th Fleet to dock in Iserlohn Fortress. When the Iserlohn Fleet returns, personnel from the 13th Fleet fire the Thor Hammer, inflicting major damage on the Iserlohn Fleet. The Imperial forces then withdraw away from Iserlohn Fortress, and Yang Wen-li's 13th Fleet succeeds in capturing the fortress, dramatically altering the balance of power between the Galactic Empire, the Free Planets Alliance and the Dominion of Fezzan in the Alliance's favour.
Upon returning to Heinessen, Yang, under the belief that, with Iserlohn captured, the war would eventually end, submits a resignation letter to Sidney Sithole, the Chief of Joint Operations Headquarters, but was rejected by the latter.
