    第二次大战Second War是一场发生于新生的洛丹伦联盟旧部落之间的战争。这场战争将几乎所有东部王国卷入,并最终以联盟胜利而告终。该事件被记载于魔兽争霸II:黑潮之中。在一些资料中,第二次战争有时也指穿越黑暗之门对德拉诺的远征。[请求来源]

    因为同样是抵抗受燃烧军团控制的兽人的侵略,第二次大战被看做是第一次大战的延伸。而数年后的第三次大战虽然并不是为抵抗兽人,但因其同样是在燃烧军团的操纵下发起,因此被看做是这两次战争的延续。

    参阅:穿越黑暗之门魔兽争霸II中的有关记录。

    战争的前奏

    第一次大战后,在安度因·洛萨的领导下,暴风王国的幸存者们穿过无尽之海前往北部的洛丹伦王国,以请求泰瑞纳斯·米奈希尔二世的帮助。在洛萨富有感染力的演讲后,泰瑞纳斯国王召开了一场讨论兽人威胁的紧急情况会议。而与此同时,兽人部落正积极探索暴风城及其周边地区,并在事实上摧毁了燃烧平原以北的所有人族防御措施。

    在暴风王国陷落与第二次大战爆发之间的这数年平静,只能认为部落和联盟双方都在为战争而进行巨大的改革和军事力量的扩充。

    人类方面,泰瑞纳斯国王通过卓越的政治手段开始向其他人类王国——激流堡达拉然库尔提拉斯奥特兰克吉尔尼斯——寻求支持。尽管大部分人类王国联合了起来并保证为新生的联盟效力,但奥特兰克国王艾登·匹瑞诺德 和吉尔尼斯国王吉恩·格雷迈恩拒绝了他们的效忠。匹瑞诺德担心人类将败于兽人,而格雷迈恩则认为仅靠吉尔尼斯的力量便足以自保。人类王国同样努力争取铁炉堡的铜须矮人、鹰巢山的蛮锤矮人和诺莫瑞根的侏儒的力量。泰纳瑞斯国王派出使节前往高等精灵王国奎尔萨拉斯,尽管最初他们对这场战争并不太关心,只派出了他们的少量力量。这些力量的集合最终形成了洛丹伦联盟

    在这混乱的年代,阿隆索斯·法奥对牧师的处境感到担忧。由于不能战斗,这个群体在战场中毫无抵抗能力。为解决这个问题,阿隆索斯开始在斯坦索姆大教堂(存疑)探索圣光与武力的结合之道。这便是圣骑士的由来。圣骑士的诞生对联盟在第二次大战中的胜利有着重要意义。阿隆索斯将最初的四位圣骑士介绍给了洛萨,其中图拉扬成为了他的副官。

    第一次战争的最后一段时间,暗影议会的领导人,术士古尔丹陷入深度的昏迷以期探查麦迪文的思想。失去了暗影议会的幕后操纵,部落从掠夺陷入了内斗。 In the last days of the First War, the leader of the Shadow Council, the warlock Gul'dan fell into a deep coma attempting to probe the mind of Medivh. Without the machinations of the Shadow Council, the Horde fell prey to infighting. In a coup d'état led by Orgrim Doomhammer to end what he saw as a corrupting influence over the Horde, the Shadow Council was destroyed as well as its puppet Warchief, Blackhand the Destroyer. Doomhammer successfully took control of the remaining Horde forces and began to bolster their devastated armies with orcs and ogres from beyond the Dark Portal. With trolls, ogres and orcs fighting side by side, it was not long before the enterprising goblins saw the potential profit in aiding them.[7] The Horde gained support from goblin machinists and mercenaries, and through use of the Demon Soul managed to enslave the Red Dragon Alexstrasza and the majority of her brood. It is unknown what relationship the Horde had with the troll tribes of Stranglethorn Vale, however they did not join forces with the Horde and stayed apart from the Second War. Upon awakening from his coma and finding himself without allies, Gul'dan "swore" allegiance to Doomhammer and began creation of the first death knights in the service of the Warchief. This was the beginning of the so-called Horde.

    The map of the Second War with the main battles and war paths

    In the 6th year after the fall of Stormwind, the Horde began their northern offensive against the Alliance forces. The Horde simultaneously launched two primary assaults. The first was a land offensive launched out of Blackrock Mountain which moved north to the dwarf holdings in Khaz Modan. The second was a naval assault launched from the ruins of Stormwind, which sailed north taking the islands of Zul'Dare, Tol Barad, and Crestfall and establishing them as primary naval bases. From these launching points, the Horde landed troops along the coasts of the Wetlands, the Arathi Highlands, and most importantly the southern coast of Lordaeron. Southern outposts such as Southshore, Tarren Mill and Hillsbrad were assaulted, and the Horde squeezed a large amount of troops into Lordaeron this way, assisted by the nation of Alterac who provided them with maps and secret routes.

    Soon after, Zul'jin and some of his champions were discovered by Horde scouts in a makeshift prison near Tarren Mill. Upon hearing the news, Doomhammer immediately ordered his release from the 40-man raid party that captured him. Now in Doomhammer's debt, Zul'jin agreed to form a pact with the orcish Horde: the plains and valleys of Lordaeron would belong to the Horde, while the trolls would take back their ancestral forests from their mortal enemies, the high elves.

    The Horde's land assault proceeded to lay waste to Loch Modan, pushing the outnumbered dwarf and gnome forces into the city of Ironforge, who sealed themselves from the outside threat. The Bleeding Hollow Clan attempted several raids on the mighty dwarven city, to no avail. For the most part, dwarves and gnomes were cut off from the rest of the Alliance, save through air support. Following the ravaging of Loch Modan, the Horde pushed farther north into the Wetlands, taking Dun Algaz, Dun Modr, and Grim Batol and converting them into fortresses for the Horde. Grim Batol became the primary base for the land offensive, and was also converted into a hatchery for the enslaved red dragonflight. Thandol Span was a pivotal battleground in the Second War, constantly shifting in possession between the two factions.

    Finally, owing to a diversion of Lothar's main army at Aerie Peak, the Horde succeeded in penetrating Quel'Thalas through the cliffs undetected. Together with the entirety of the Amani tribe under Zul'jin, Doomhammer's troops slashed and burned their way through the elven forests, and made it as far as Eversong Woods before the Alliance reinforcements could arrive.

    Brief counterattacks from the Alliance

    Outraged at the attack on their borders, the Elves finally put forth their full strength in the war effort. This included the deployment of Elven Destroyers south to the Hinterlands and to the shores of Lordaeron. High Commander Anduin Lothar decided to split his army in order to out manuever the Horde. He left half of his army, under command of his second-in-command, to destroy the Horde threat in the Elven Forests, while Lothar's half would stay in the Hinterlands to destroy the large number of Horde still remaining there. Lordaeron and Quel'Thalas managed to push back the majority of Horde forces to the shores of Hillsbrad, but not before Gul'dan was able to acquire High Elven runestones to use in his effort to create ogre-magi for the war effort. With support from the Elves, the Alliance was able to launch an attack on Zul'Dare and end the invasion of Lordaeron. Though Hillsbrad and Southshore were nearly obliterated, the Horde navies were driven back, presumably to the shores of the Wetlands, Crestfall, and the ruins of Stormwind.

    Following the victory in the north, the Alliance concentrated on pushing back the ground offensive on the edge of the Arathi Highlands on the great bridges of the Thandol Span. The first step was a bloody retaking of the Horde fortress on Tol Barad for use as a staging point for an invasion upon Dun Modr, the primary base of support for the attacks upon the Thandol Span. With naval support from Tol Barad, the Alliance ground forces were finally able to push across the Thandol Span and reclaim Dun Modr. The Alliance continued to push south, taking the base at Dun Algaz. Though they were unable to completely take the cursed fortress of Grim Batol, they effectively shattered the armies of the Horde and causing them to retreat from Khaz Modan.

    After the defeat of the Horde forces in Khaz Modan, a brief pause in open combat ensued. The Horde attempted to gather more troops from the south, including the newly created Death Knights. The Alliance began to turn their sights northward to the remnants of the Horde forces in northern Lordaeron, and to that end they sent Uther Lightbringer and his newly formed Knights of the Silver Hand to lend aid to the victims of the war. However, a minor peasant riot in Tyr's Hand led to a discovery of a plot from Lord Perenolde of Alterac, who was attempting to destroy the Alliance from within. Learning of Alterac's plots, the Alliance forces obliterated the small, treacherous kingdom.

    The Siege of Lordaeron

    Alterac's betrayal had let the entire Horde army through to the walls of Lordaeron, and they began sieging the capital. Troops from Stromgarde cut off all remaining Horde reinforcements in Alterac and imprisoned Perenolde for his treason. The whole of the Alliance army converged on the Horde, but were unable to defeat them at first. In the midst of this battle Gul'dan withdrew the Stormreaver and Twilight's Hammer Clans, dividing the orcish forces and leaving the remaining clans under Orgrim Doomhammer at the mercy of the armies of the Alliance. Gul'dan had discovered the location of the Tomb of Sargeras, and raised the sunken ruin from the Great Sea in an attempt to claim the Eye of Sargeras for his own. Upon opening the tomb, however, Gul'dan was annihilated by the demons inside.

    Meanwhile, Doomhammer withdrew his forces to pursue Gul'dan in order to punish them for abandoning the Horde. The Alliance took this opportunity to defeat the Horde's remaining standing troops in Lordaeron, who were in shambles without their leaders or air support. The Stormreaver and Twilight's Hammer Clan were destroyed by Doomhammer's forces, which included his secret weapon: the red dragons.

    The Alliance Takeover

    Lord Lothar, seeing that the Horde was fracturing from within, gathered the last of his forces and pushed Doomhammer south, back into the shattered heartland of Stormwind. There, the Alliance forces trapped the retreating Horde within the volcanic fortress of Blackrock Spire. With the Horde forces thus weakened, the Alliance laid siege to the fortress of Blackrock. In order to break the siege, Doomhammer and what followers he had left charged out of the Spire and attacked Lord Lothar and his Paladins. After a titanic duel, Doomhammer narrowly managed to kill Lord Lothar. Upon his death, Lothar's second-in-command, the paladin Turalyon took command, made Doomhammer his prisoner, and chased the retreating orcs to their last bastion of power, the Dark Portal.

    Ragged and broken, the remaining Horde forces attempted a defense of the Dark Portal. In what has been described as the bloodiest battle of the Second War, the orcs were eventually defeated, their leaders rounded up, and Doomhammer himself taken in chains. Shortly thereafter, the wizard Khadgar, flanked by the brave warriors of the Alliance, destroyed the Dark Portal. With the destruction of the Dark Portal, the Second War was ended.
