A battle was fought between the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders and the Galactic Republic in the Makem system sometime between 3973 BBY and 3965 BBY, during the early years of the conflict known as the Mandalorian Wars. The Mandalorians reached Makem after a battle in the Lianna system, where they were victorious. They defeated their opponents at Makem and then moved on to fight a battle in the Quermia system.
Behind the scenes
The battle is only referenced once in The Essential Atlas. It is marked on a galactic map showing the course of the Mandalorian Wars rather than described in prose. In the Atlas, the Makem system is denoted as the "Makem Te system" after the planet of Makem Te, which it contains.

Notes and references
- The Essential Atlas
- While the map in The Essential Atlas labels the eastern campaign as occurring in 3963 BBY, the text of both the Atlas and The Essential Guide to Warfare directly contradict this: both sources state that Mandalorians raided Hutt Space and the planets east of Centares before they actually battled the Republic in 3965 BBY. Thus, the eastern campaign must occur between 3973 BBY and 3965 BBY.
