- "The Neo-Crusaders smashed a Republic task force at Commenor and ravaged Duro in 3962 BBY—but that was as far as they would get."
- ―From Vilnau Teupt's "Industry, Honor, Savagery: Shaping the Mandalorian Soul", 24 ABY
A battle took place on the planet of Commenor in 3962 BBY as part of the Mandalorian Wars, a conflict between the Galactic Republic and Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders. The Mandalorians campaigned to take control of the Core World of Duro that year, an offensive they dubbed "Mandalorian Triumph." The charge consisted of two forces advancing Coreward, with one originating from Mandalorian territory that conquered several worlds before it passed through the Zel system and to Commenor. Once the Mandalorians defeated a Republic task force stationed on Commenor and took the world, they moved on to the Quellor system, then the Exodeen system, before finally taking Duro.
Behind the scenes
The battle was referenced in 2009's The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace. The Commenor system was marked on the galactic map showing systems that hosted battles of the Mandalorian Wars. The 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart later referred to the battle as taking place on the planet of Commenor.
