"To the 212th!"
―Clone troopers at 79's, declaring a toast to the battalion[src]

The 212th Attack Battalion was a military division of the Grand Army of the Republic,[11] a clone army engineered to serve the Galactic Republic.[12] Led by Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and his subordinate, Clone Commander CC-2224, the 212th fought against the droid forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems throughout the Clone Wars.[11] By the third and last year of the conflict, the 212th led an invasion of the Separatist-controlled world of Utapau, engaging an army of battle droids while Kenobi hunted General Grievous in order to end the war. Although the Jedi Master completed his task by killing Grievous, he was ultimately betrayed by his soldiers upon the activation of Order 66, a protocol that called for the extermination of all Jedi. The clones failed to execute their former leader, however.[2]

In the aftermath of the Proclamation of the New Order, the 212th continued its service in the armed forces of the Galactic Empire. During their days in service to the new government, the battalion dispatched to the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk where they suppressed an indigenous uprising. At that time they served under the command of General Kahdah.[1]
