The Battle of Umbara was a major battle that took place during the Clone Wars. The Republic struggles to recapture the planet Umbara as Jedi General Skywalker and Kenobi lead the 501st and 212th. During the battle, the 501st was temporarily in charge by General Pong Krell who secretly is working for Count Dooku while Skywalker was requested back to Coruscant.
During the early days of the Clone Wars, the Umbarans had a presence within the Galactic Republic. They were represented by Senator Mee Deechi, a militarist politician who supported expansions to the Grand Army of the Republic. However, in 21 BBY, Deechi was murdered by a fellow politician, Representative Lolo Purs, assistant to Senator Onacanda Farr, who Purs had also murdered. Following the death of their senator, the Umbarans withdrew from the Republic and allied themselves with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, bringing their advanced technology to the Separatist aid.
The Republic, in retaliation to the Separatists restricting their grip over an important supply line, launched a campaign, with Jedi Generals Saesee Tiin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Pong Krell, and Anakin Skywalker taking the control of it. Jedi Commanders Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee were sent as well, being assigned to air support.
