Events Leading Up to the War
The path to the war started when Earth King Uli was assassinated. His younger brother Toro took his place. Uli's son Dou was still the heir to the throne, however. Toro took complete control over the Earth Kingdom. He dissolved all government forces other than the royal family. Toro had complete control over the kingdom. However, he was killed by angry protesters and rebels of Ba Sing Se a few months later.
Though Uli was generally considered a good Earth King, Toro was not. However, Toro was the only father young Dou had known. By the time Toro was killed, Dou was old enough to take the throne for himself, but he was a tyrant just like his uncle Toro. Earth King Dou granted himself even more power. He eventually blocked off the Water Tribes from the rest of the world, cutting them off from trade, including anything they could use to fight off the Earth Kingdom.
During a secret mission one night, several Northern Water Tribe aircraft broke past the blockade, and bombed Ba Sing Se. Earth King Dou was killed. His son Boli, who was in Omashu at the time, became the new Earth King. Earth King Boli was the worst of them all. He was not afraid to openly attack, and he conquered Republic City and all other nation-neutral lands. The Fire Nation declared war on the Earth Kingdom within days.

Slowly but surely, the Earth Kingdom began to gain the upper-hand. After a war of very small battles, the Earth Kingdom launches a massive attack on the Fire Nation. Much of the nation is destroyed. Shortly after this, Fire Lord Ajoke, considered the most powerful bender in the world, is assassinated. His brotherbecomes Fire Lord, but his other brother forms the . The Lightning Empire aligns itself with the Earth Kingdom.
After several more attacks with super-weapons including an artificial solar eclipse, a cyborg-like monster made from Earth King Boli's, and several new city-destroying bombs, the Fire Nation falls apart. With the Fire Nation considered destroyed, Earth King Boli has just about won the war.
