Book I, Part I
It is a time of war! The Separatist plot to build a massive droid army on Geonosis was interrupted when the Republic activated an army of clone troopers secretly commissioned by a late Jedi Master years earlier. To lead this newly-formed Grand Army of the Republic, Jedi Knights have been made military Generals.
Jedi Master Mace Windu fought on the front lines of the Battle of Geonosis, helping to secure a victory for the Republic, but not without loss-many Jedi fell.
Now, as the Clone Wars rage on, Windu and his fellow Jedi find themselves pulled away from their roles as peace keepers to become warriors for the Republic….
