I was curious as to how the actual rebel troopers(i.e. not ewoks or main characters) fared in the ground battle of endor. From what I saw in there articles, they all appeared to survive the ordeal. I watched the movie recently and in a couple of the bunker shots there appears to be one of them lying facedown in the dirt. In a later scene he's not there. Any other knowledge of this?18.104.22.168
I've read an online summary of the battle which states four commandos were killed in the initial raid on the bunker when they encountered six stormtroopers at a cross corridor within the complex. Three stormtroopers were killed in the intial contact of blaster fire, while the remaining three fortified their positions behind a blast door, killing each of the four rebels as they passed through it. Chewbacca rushed the blast door crushing two imperials as Princess Liea shot and killed the third.
After the attempt to take the main control room and consequent capture of the rebel team, the Ewoks then began their assault as they allowed the rebel team to break free and re-arm.
Two more commandos were killed in the ensuing battle.
That makes a total of six from the original commando squad of thirteen who were KIA on the surface of Endor.
I believe the information in the summary was provided from the novel.
