V-19 fighters were then deployed during the Battle of Teth, where Kenobi arrived with reinforcements to help Skywalker. With his wingman CC-2237 "Odd Ball," they led the squadron against the vulture droids orbiting the castle. During the battle, Odd Ball was tailed by two vulture droids, but Kenobi was able to shoot them down to save his wingman. Kenobi then joined the battle on the ground while Odd Ball and the rest of the squadron continued to engage the droid fighters. When Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano stole a freighter after rescuing Rotta from Separatist captivity, they found themselves in the firefight between the V-19s and the vulture droids. Skywalker then requested Yularen in his Star Destroyer to have them land so they can deliver Rotta to safety, but vulture droids overtook them in a suicide run, crashing into the hangar and destroying all V-19s in there, making it impossible for him to land.[7]

A battalion of the 501st Legion, alongside the 224th, was deployed to fight early in the Clone Wars during the Battle of Mimban. The battle was initially led by Jedi General Laan Tik, though command fell to Senator Jar Jar Binks after Tik was killed in action. Being the most senior military leader, Captain Rex assigned Jesse to protect Binks as the Republic forces retreated. Back at base, Rex and his troops discussed their combat options. Jesse agreed with Hardcase that attacking the enemy's shield generator, which was three kilometers out, would be a suicide mission. Rex ordered them to contact command and mark their coordinates for an exfil shuttle. As Jesse and the rest of the troops organized their evacuation, Rex undertook the task of attacking the shield generator alone,[1] and presumably succeeded.[note 1]

In 21 BBY, Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi with Jesse and other clone troopers went to Saleucami to find General Grievous, who landed on the planet's surface after jettisoning his escape pod. Kenobi sent Captain Rex, Jesse, Kix and Hardcase to find the other escape pods, while himself, Cody and Crys stayed to investigate the remains of the crashed ship. Using BARC speeders, the troopers were unaware that two commando droids were waiting with sniper rifles to attack the clones. One of the droids shot Rex, knocking him off his BARC speeder. Jesse ordered Kix and Hardcase to use their speeders to protect Rex, while he rode over to where the shot had been fired. Jesse then used the blaster cannons on his speeder to fire at the droids, thus destroying them. When Jesse returned to where Rex and the other clones were, Kix informed Jesse that Rex's injuries were bad. Jesse then informed the team that the two droids might have called for backup and they should find shelter for Rex to heal. Jesse noticed some domesticated animals and decided that they were on a farmer's land and Kix took them in the direction of the farmer's homestead. After arriving at the farmer's home, Rex told Jesse that he should lead the search party. Jesse, Hardcase and Kix then left Rex to be tended to by the farmer's wife. Jesse and the rest of his troopers went back to Kenobi who reported him of what happened. [2]

In 19 BBY, former Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano sought the assistance of Skywalker and Kenobi, in hopes of capturing the rogue Sith Lord Maul. However, due to political reasons, they could not directly intervene. Skywalker, however, in an attempt to assist, created a detachment of the 501st, called the 332nd Company, which saw Rex be promoted to Commander, with Captain Vaughn taking a new position. Jesse was also placed in this unit.[7] Shortly thereafter, the unit was deployed to the planet, with the clones deploying from Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry gunships, wielding jetpacks which allowed them to land with relative ease, though engaging Mandalorian supercommandos on the way down. Jesse, Rex, Vaughn, and a majority of the 332nd Company made it down with the assistance of the Nite Owls and Tano.[7]

The story lets us know that saving a lot of British soldiers requires a team to undertake a virtual suicide mission. Spymaster Jensen (James Robertson Justice) assembles a crack commando squad under Major Roy Franklin (Anthony Quayle) to destroy two giant cannon guarding the approach to the Turkish coast, where the British Navy needs to rescue thousands of trapped Allied troops. Mountain-climbing expert Captain Keith Mallory (Gregory Peck) must fight alongside his sworn personal enemy, the Greek Colonel Andrea Stavros (Anthony Quinn) and the sarcastic explosives expert Corporal Miller (David Niven). Lethal assassins "Butcher" Brown (Stanley Baker) and young Spyros Pappadimos (James Darren) complete the team. Narrowly reaching the German-held target island, the commandos scale the Navarone cliffs before their luck takes a turn for the worse. Major Franklin is badly injured in a fall, and orders from base advance their sabotage mission by one entire day. Resistance agents Maria Pappadimos (Irene Papas) and the mute Anna (Gia Scala) provide assistance, but the German defenders seem able to anticipate the squad's every move.

Left-wing, blacklisted producer Carl Foreman was one of the uncredited writers of The Bridge on the River Kwai, David Lean's adventure tale that remains rooted in the hard facts of war: prisoners die in terrible camps, good soldiers become traitors and commanders are forced to sacrifice their own men. Foreman sprinkles heavy messages and moral dilemmas atop novelist Alistair MacLean's action-oriented commando tale, but the movie's surface action refuses to be serious. Our intrepid band of fighters proves to have more lives than a barrel of cats: like the Greek heroes that once fought in the Aegean of old, they accomplish one 'impossible' feat after another. Being overtaken by a heavily armed German patrol boat isn not a serious problem. They survive a horrendous shipwreck yet save their equipment. They then scale a slick vertical cliff in the middle of a typhoon.

The desperate commandos pause frequently for Carl Foreman's rather facile lectures about moral issues in wartime. Gregory Peck grinds his jaw mulling over tough a life & death decision, only to suffer David Niven's lame accusations of callousness: "Do you realize what you've done? You've used up an important human being!" When Niven's character complains that Peck is putting the mission ahead of the personal safety and comfort of his teammates, we're tempted to stammer out, "Well, Duh!" The idea that commandos on a do-or-die suicide mission should suddenly debate the finer points of combat etiquette is ludicrous, but the actors give it their all. To pay off all of this grandstanding, poor Gregory Peck must escalate his righteous fury to the point of waving a gun at Niven while shaking like a teakettle.

This messages may be half-baked but The Guns of Navarone nevertheless stays ahead of its audience. The skirmishes, escapes and ten-cent intrigues are shared by the team's local allies, a stoic pair of female partisans. Like Ingrid Bergman in For Whom the Bell Tolls, Gia Scala's Anna has cropped hair and a hurt-sparrow look. It turns out to be a ruse. After avoiding typical 'glamorous resistance girl' clichés, Carl Foreman cleverly injects a censor-proof sex scene into the proceedings. The commandos 'rape' Anna by tearing her dress and exposing her naked back for our enjoyment. They then throw her to the ground, where she must clutch at her garments for hot-cha publicity poses --- but as the scene has no sexual component and a valid excuse for the near-nudity, Forman can get away with it!

Carl Foreman's anti-war ideas put the damper on some aspects of the movie. Stanley Baker's "Butcher of Barcelona" tough guy Brown is completely inconsistent. Like the young commando Joyce in Foreman's Bridge on the River Kwai, Brown balks in tense situations and doesn't use his knife, leading Gregory Peck's Mallory to question his usefulness to the mission. James Darren's young Greek is more or less ignored in the rush to give all the meaty scenes to the three main stars; Forman saddles him with a ridiculous set-piece where he engages in a machine-gun duel with a German officer. They just stand up in plain sight and blast away at one another. This must have been Foreman's idea of a good image to express the futility of war. He repeated it without much elabortion for the dud conclusion of his later The Victors.

The Guns of Navarone shows its winning hand with a show-stopping finale, when the commandos finally penetrate umpteen levels of non-existent Nazi security and lock themselves in with the two giant guns. On a big screen, the set is as huge and intimidating as something from an old Cecil B. DeMille movie. Our heroes are trapped while the Germans blowtorch their way in, and the whole British Navy is expected at any moment. Navarone's immediate legacy can be seen in the best of the James Bond films, where 007 similarly squirrels his way into outrageously grandiose vaults and fortresses (Dr. No, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice), blows up the whole schmeer and engineers a deft escape. Foreman balances the high jeopardy with disarming comedy touches, like a decoy stink bomb hidden in a dead rat. Interestingly, later Alistair MacLean spectaculars would treat WW2 as James Bond vs. the Nazis. Especially Where Eagles Dare, with its laconic heroes performing stunts too far-fetched for a Republic serial.

American Rabbi Max Eichhorn had been in the camp since April 30, the day Hitler committed suicide. He had acquired much experience serving as a Reform chaplain with combat units in Western Europe. Dachau represented an especially daunting challenge. The hatred Poles displayed for Jews, including Polish Jews, profoundly shocked Rabbi Eichhorn. Quinn, too, was profoundly unsettled by the breakdowns in solidarity between inmates uncovered in his interviews.
