George Beahm, a former U.S. Army major, draws on his experience to discuss the military science of the sprawling Star Wars universe: its personnel, weapons, technology, tactics and strategy, including an analysis of its key battles to explain how the outmanned and outgunned rebels ultimately prevailed against overwhelming forces.

Contrasting the military doctrine of the real world with the fictional world of Star Wars, the author constructively criticizes the military strengths and weaknesses of Darth Vader’s Galactic Empire and Kylo Ren’s First Order...

FromStar Wars: A New Hope (1977) toRogue One (2016), this timely book demystifies the operational arts in an accessible and entertaining way for military personnel and civilians.

Replete with a glossary of military terms, this book is supplemented with an annotated bibliography.

GEORGE BEAHM has published more than thirty books, which have been translated into more than two dozen languages worldwide and have appeared on numerous bestseller lists including theNew York Times,Wall Street Journal,USA Today,Los Angeles Times, andPublishersWeekly. A former Army major in the field artillery who served on active duty, in the National Guard, and in the Army Reserve, Beahm and his wife live in southeast Virginia.

"George Beahm does it again. This book explores the military elements and aspects of the STAR WARS universe, as seen and interpreted by a seasoned and knowledgeable military man. Not only does the book provide fascinating info and insights, it shows a boundless respect for the incredible universe created by George Lucas, and further immerses fans in its history and mythology." —Stephen J. Spignesi,New York Timesbestselling author ofThe Lost Work of Stephen King

"Exhaustive, reverential, and witty!The Military Science of Star Warsprovides real-world insight into George Lucas's classic of imagination." —Jan Strnad, award-winning author ofStar Wars: Prelude to Rebellion
