The title says it all.

I've been perusing some of my books & Sarna trying to find out when & who was involved in reconquering of Oliver & Muphrid during Operation Scour.

Anyone able to point me to a book that mentions them?

The fact that Sarna doesn't say anything makes me think there is nothing & after 2 books I'm coming up short.

All I got is the small blurb about Muphrid being taken in October-68 w/ Tac Nukes.

But nothing on when it was retaken or anything on Oliver.

Muphrid is mentioned as one of the worlds hit with the Redburn Virus in Final Reckoning, pg. 13.

Oliver and Muphrid both get some additional information in Republic Worlds, but it's still pretty broad and generic.

Thanks, I hadn't heard of that book before, had to google to figure out what it was.

Sadly, most everything in it is on Sarna it looks like.

I can't seem to find anything on the Date or What Coalition Units were involved in retaking them.

Fun fact about Muphrid - the planetary ruler is the same in 3067 as it is in 3130.
So, presumably he lived through the Blakist occupation and subsequent OPERATION SCOUR.
Could be an interesting idea for a resistance leader, fighting the Blakists

or... it's simply someone named after an ancestor.

Victor & Katie were both over 100 when they died, no reason this guy couldn't be also.

SLDF Medical tech had average human lifespan at 160+ IIRC from SLSB.

And Terra never lost that so likely spread back around to the rest of the RotS.
