Publisher's Summary

The Military Science of Star Wars is an audiobook that will appeal to Star Wars fans everywhere 

The first ever in-depth analysis of the tactics and equipment used by the heroes and villains of the Star Wars universe has arrived! Spanning all of the films, this comprehensive audiobook goes into detail about the various guerrilla tactics of the Rebel Alliance and the awe-inspiring might of the Grand Army of the Republic and Darth Vader's Empire. Including detailed examples from Earth’s military history, best-selling author George Beahm illustrates how a merciless empire managed to subdue a galaxy with the application of overwhelming force and technology, and how a ragtag group of rebels could cobble together enough of a punch to topple a seemingly unbeatable enemy.

Excellent for most part but several extreme fails

Author needs to fact check himself before having book published.

Constantly referred to battle of 2nd Death Star as occurring in Empire Strikes Back. Also constantly referring to the Separatist Droid army as the Empire in the Battle of Naboo.

Makes me question his other facts though at least the other Star Wars details were correct.

Also apparently author has forgotten his Civil War history. Jar Jar being made a general no different than inexperienced political generals back then.

Finally while Jaws was released in the USA on 7/20/75, Star Wars release date which author got right in the end but not the intro is 5/25/77. Author states both Jaws & Star Wars released right after each other and a month following the end of the Vietnam War which was 4/30/75.

Final note, the narrator, Robert Petkoff, did an amazing job. Looking forward to hearing more from him in the future.

A very well done take on Star Wars.

Surprised this wasn't done before, but, glad it was. Approaching Star Wars from a military stand point is impressive, and well put together. Hope this sort of thing is, or has been done for other science fiction things.
