"We had Battle of Gormen won, until the AT-ATs arrived. They came out of the fog and ripped apart the front lines. The locals ran in terror, but the experienced surrendered. We knew that you can't outrun an AT-AT."
―Major Bren Derlin, Rebel Alliance field commander[src]

The Battle of Gormen was a battle fought on the planet Gormen during the Galactic Civil War. Major Bren Derlin served as field commander for the Alliance to Restore the Republic during this battle, which he believed the Alliance was close to winning until the arrival of AT-AT walkers on the battlefield. The AT-ATs ripped apart Rebel forces stationed on the front lines, causing the locals to flee, while the more experienced Alliance soldiers simply surrendered.[3]
