The Second Battle of Aldebaran was a major battle in the Midwayan Civil War. The Midwayan military had suffered many defeats in the Midwayan Civil War, and some thought that the Red Front was going to overthrow the government. The Midwayan military had lost their capitol, Aldebaran, in the Battle of Aldebaran. This had dealt a blow to the morale of the Midwayan military. Military generals all agreed that a successful counterattack would raise the morale of the soldiers. Despite strong opposition from generals, the Emperor of the Union of Midway, Zabuza Hashimoto, chose to lead the attack himself.

The Midwayan strategy was that one attack force of 4,000 troops would attack the city from the east, while a smaller group of 3,000 troops would swing around and attack the city from the west. The Red Front was caught completely off guard, as a majority of the defending troops had left to take part in the Second Battle of Eastern City. The Red Front forces were quickly overwhelmed, and their commander George Taketa retreated with what forces remained of the Red Front. It was later found that he had immediately headed for Eastern City, where he assisted the Red Front in taking the city.
