  • The Southern Water Tribe Raids were a series of raids by the Fire Nation military forces on the Southern Water Tribe. These had the strategic goal of eliminating all Waterbenders in the Southern Water Tribe, as well as decimating its population, as part of The War. The raids appeared to be a victory for the Fire Nation, but in actuality, were a strategic defeat, as two Waterbenders, Katara and Hama, survived.
  • A number of people residing in the Northern Water Tribe headed south to found the Southern Tribe, which slowly grew and prospered. Before the Hundred Year War, the Southern Water Tribe had had a significant population. The tribe was based around one great city, which had thick walls of ice.

abstract
  • The Southern Water Tribe Raids were a series of raids by the Fire Nation military forces on the Southern Water Tribe. These had the strategic goal of eliminating all Waterbenders in the Southern Water Tribe, as well as decimating its population, as part of The War. The raids appeared to be a victory for the Fire Nation, but in actuality, were a strategic defeat, as two Waterbenders, Katara and Hama, survived.
  • A number of people residing in the Northern Water Tribe headed south to found the Southern Tribe, which slowly grew and prospered. Before the Hundred Year War, the Southern Water Tribe had had a significant population. The tribe was based around one great city, which had thick walls of ice. In 0 AG, Fire Lord Sozin launched a war on the other nations. The Fire Nation planned to conquer the entire world in the War. This inevitably meant an attack on the Southern Water Tribe. However, as the South Pole was less strategically important to the Fire Nation, with limited resources and only a small population, Fire Lord Azulon, Sozin's successor, came to the conculsion that eliminating waterbenders would be the best strategy, as this would prevent larger participation in the Hundred Year War, reducing resistance against the Fire Nation in the Earth Kingdom. The Fire Nation did not intend to defeat the Southern Water Tribe in one great battle, as it was not necessary and would waste resources that could be used elsewhere. Their goals could be achieved more effectively and with less loss of life through a series of short raids that prevented a coordinated counterattack. To this end, the Fire Nation sent a number of naval forces south.
