Comments about strategy and the campaign

The rebels were too under powered to stand up to the unrelenting Imperial reinforcements.  Jyn and Mak were especially ill-equipped.  When Gaarkhan and Mak were trapped behind doors, it was a hopeless endeavor.  The mission requires the rebels to quickly pacify the Imperials while rushing to the clearing before the doors close and lock.
