The vengeance of the Sith has returned.
Anakin Skywalker

The Second Great Galactic War, also known as the Second Draggulch Period, the Second Great War, and as Darth Sidious' Crusade, was a conflict initiated by the Sith Empire Reborn, led by its Emperor, a Dark Lord of the Sith and a former Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, Darth Sidious, better known as Palpatine, who sought to control the galaxy, and destroy the Jedi Order.

Faced with annihilation, the Jedi and the Republic faced the new Sith threat together, in spite of the massive amount of losses suffered during the Clone Wars.

The war began when the Republic and Jedi investigated rumors that a new threat was on the rise in the Outer Rim, sending Jedi Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to the planet of Korriban, where the Sith Order had been established millenia prior. There, the two Jedi discovered that another Sith Empire had been brought into existence, with Palpatine, who fled at the end of the Clone Wars, as its ruler.

Thus, for the first time since the New Sith Wars, Jedi and Sith clashed, struggling over the fate of the galaxy. As the war raged on, countless lives were lost, and, at one point, it seemed that the Republic was doomed, as it had lost control of Coruscant and much of it's former territory by 24 ArS.

However, behind Chancellor Padmé Naberrie, who led the Republic after her predecessor's death, she, along with the Jedi, rallied the Republic, in one of the greatest offensives in galactic history. This campaign was later credited as what saved the Republic from total destruction in a period from 25 ArS to 33 ArS.

The war lasted, in all, fourteen years, but it finally ended at the Battle of Yavin, where Skywalker killed Palpatine, causing the collapse of the Sith Empire Reborn, thus fulfilling the prophecy of the Chosen One, and bringing balance to the Force.
