Following the Battle of Geonosis,[1] Jedi Knights and Masters were given the rank of General in the newly formed Grand Army of the Galactic Republic.[19] During the numerous battles of the Clone Wars, numerous Jedi Generals were killed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Droid Army forces under General Grievous, and by Grievous himself.[5] Near the end of the Clone War, many of the Jedi Generals were killed when Supreme Chancellor Palpatine issued Order 66 to the clone troopers.[2]

Two of the only Jedi Generals to survive Palpatine's purge were the famed Jedi Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi[7] and Yoda.[21]
