The Battle of Slag's Pit was a battle late in the Clone Wars. The general in charge of the Galactic Republic's troops hoped to use demolitions to bury a Separatist fortification. When the Republic soldier and explosives expert Skelly pointed out that the ground was not firm enough and that the available explosives were the wrong kind, the general did not listen and ordered a charge. Skelly decided to enter the breach himself, hoping that he could save his fellow soldiers thanks to his innate talents. However, the explosives expert fell in a coma, and all of his companions died in the charge.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Battle of Slag's Pit was first mentioned in A New Dawn, a canon novel written by John Jackson Miller. Miller has stated that the Battle of Slag's Pit is the Clone Wars equivalent to the American Civil War's Battle of the Crater.
