The War of Fellow Brothers (Bai: 同胞之战) was a theatre of the Great Revolutionary Wars fought in East Uletha, between the Bai Democratic Republic and the Socialist Alliance to Restore the Empire, in the 1930s and 40s. Started in 193X with the invasion of Kanglapo, it ended with the Fascists' defeat.

The 1922 coup leading to the overthrow of the Middle Bai Dynasty, and the fascists, under Yu Shanliu, seek to destroy the socialists and the remnants of the monarchy through a civil war. The communist neighbours, backing the socialist faction against the fascist, led to the rise of tensions between the fascists and the pro-socialist and communist neighbours, in addition to conflicts over territorial disputes (the Oranian Gulf Crisis). On 22 June 1929, the Bai Fascist Republic launched Operation Red Flower and bombed a Kanglapolish base in the Oranian gulf, triggering the War of Fellow Brothers. The fascists attempted an invasion of Kanglapo to stamp out the Bai socialist bases within the country.

While the fascists saw early successes, including the successful occupation of Ninwa, the Kazhal and the northern regions, and the elimination of the Bai Emperor, the strong opposition of fascist occupation, economic crises and the drop in support by its allies led the leader Yu to declare surrender and shortly afterwards committed suicide on 15 August 1942. Although the war was a victory for the socialists, it led to a cold war divide between the Bai socialists and its neighbours. The Bai socialists also struggled to reinstate law and order in the Empire as various warlords and generals claimed control over various areas of the empire, starting the Bai Warlord Era.
