The Battle of the Tower was fought on the Outer Rim world Crucival between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry nineteen years after the Clone Wars. The Empire armed the civilians to help them defend the Crucival transmitter tower. But near the beginning they abandoned the armed civilians and hid under their shield. After decimating the civilian force, the Sixty-First shredded through the towers defense. After the battle, one of the civilians Hazram Namir joined the Sixty-First after the death of his friend Pira. He was recruited by the Besalisk Gadren.
