The Zambian War was an armed conflict that in the Zambia-Zimbabwe that occured in two phases, Beginning on 28 November 2055 during an invasion by international forces led by Australia, it continued through the downfall of the Congress of Africa-led nation and it's partitioning into Zambia and Zimbabwe and a longer phase of fighting in which numerous insurgent groups arose in opposition to the occupying forces. After seven years of conflict, Australia, the last nation to have forces present in the two new states, completed total withdrawal of its military personnel on 15 May 2063. The insurgency continued to linger however for up to four decades after international evacuation.

A decade prior to the conflict, Australia and its allies had been critical of Zambia-Zimbabwe in the United Nations over the governments treatment of its white minority, with claims that they were being persecuted by the black supremacist Congress of Africa party that controlled the nation. Eventually, UN reports into the claims found them to be true with Zambia-Zimbabwe expelled from the organisation on 10 July 2055 after discovering that the COA-led government had been systematically and deliberately murdering its white citizens in planned attacks. After the expulsion, Australia was the first to withdraw all diplomatic relations with the nation.

On 23 November 2055 following the bombing of a UN plane sanctioned to retrieve the reporters who conducted the investigation, Australia ensembled a international forces to prepare for conflict with Zambia-Zimbabwe, the coalition of four countries conducting a surprise invasion on 28 November without declaring war. Overrunning the nation within two months with President Sonkwe Mambwe being killed in a bombing raid on Lusaka, it was occupied by the victorious coalition and put under temporary UN control from 2056 to 2058 when the state was separated into the two former republics Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Violence grew shortly following the invasion as sectarian groups and COA splinter organisations organised to fight the international coalition in a protracted insurgency that saw the international force's casualties rise immensely, 93 percent of the casualties they sustained being sustained during this period of fighting. 

Over time, coalition members began to faced increasing backlash to the war as it continued to linger on throughout the 2050's, Canada and the United Kingdom withdrawing their forces by the end of the decade whilst the United States evacuated their coalition army by the end of 2060. Australia however maintained their military presence in the two new states in an effort to maintain the peace and fight the growing insurgency. In late 2062, Prime Minister Andrew Burges finally announced the withdrawal of all Australian troops from the nation by mid-2063, allowing Zambia and Zimbabwe to take effective action of their internal complications, this action finally achieved in May 2063 after seven and a half years of conflict.
