Kurzbeschreibung

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO THE ULTIMATE INTERGALACTIC BATTLEFIELD
 
Like many a great epic, Star Wars is rooted in a rich history of armed conflict. Now, for the first time, the facts, figures, and fascinating backstories of major clashes and combatants in the vast Star Wars universe have been documented in one fully illustrated volume. Extensively researched and inventively written, Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare combines action-filled narrative with encyclopedic knowledge that:
 
• explores notable military units and groups
• traces the development of significant armaments and technologies
• profiles key warship classes, ground units, and manufacturers
• provides capsule biographies of great military leaders
• presents eyewitness troopers’ accounts of combat
• plus—enough additional profiles, intel, history, and lore to span the cosmos!
 
Encompassing all of the Star Wars media, including the legendary films, the hit TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the bestselling books, comics, and videogames, and packed with original full-color artwork, Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare is a conquering achievement.

Von Chewie
Format:Taschenbuch
Im Raum über der blauen Hemisphäre eines unbekannten Planeten hängt eine gewaltige Raumstation, umschwirrt von imperialen Jägern und Shuttle(s), und betankt mindestens ein Dutzend nicht weniger beeindruckender Schlachtschiffe ' Sternzerstörer, 'Dreadnoughts'. Perfekt konstruiert und gestochen scharf ist dies eine Szene, die wohl die Fantasie eines jeden Star Wars-Fan beflügelt. Das Bild verselbstständigt sich, gerät in Bewegung: Sturmtruppen marschieren über die Decks der Schiffe, eifrige imperiale Offiziere bedienen Kontrollen.
Das beschriebene Bild ist eines von vielen im neuen 'Essential Guide to Warfare' von Jason Fry ('The Essential Atlas' uvm.) und Paul Urquhart. Nachdem das Projekt erstmals 2008 unter dem Namen 'The Essential Guide to the Star Wars Military' von Karen Traviss ('Republic Commando') angekündigt worden war, erlebte der dritte Essential Guide der dritten Generation unzählige Aufschübe, einen Autoren- und Titelwechsel und noch einen und noch einen Aufschub. Doch was lange währte wurde nun doch endlich gut ' hat sich das lange Warten gelohnt? Meine Antwort: Ja, aber'

Was man erwarten konnte'
'oder sollte ' und was ich erwartet habe: verfolgt man Äußerungen vor allem jüngerer Mitglieder des Fandoms stößt man nicht selten auf ein gewisses ' selten befriedigtes ' Bedürfnis nach Messbarkeit und harten Fakten. Flottengrößen, Hyperantriebsklassen, Kommandostrukturen, technische Spezifikationen' Genau das hätte man sicher von Karen Traviss erwarten dürfen. Von Jason Fry konnte man hingegen, ist man ehrlich, kaum ein solches Buch erwarten, das bestätigten sowohl die Änderung des Titels als auch Interviews im Vorfeld der Veröffentlichung.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Star Wars Essential Guide Yet! 5. April 2012
Von Peter Morrison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
They don't call it Star Peace for a reason, authors Jason Fry and Paul Urquhart put the war in Star Wars with the latest edition in the Essential Guide series, Star Wars: Essential Guide to Warfare.

This book has long been in development originally planned to be the Essential Guide to the Star Wars Military was announced in 2008 and to be authored by Karen Traviss before her Ba'slan shev'la from the galaxy far, far away.

I have been a constant reader of the Star Wars Expanded Universe since it's modern rebirth under Timothy Zahn in the early 1990s, but early in the EU the Essential Guide line was something that while I read felt rather shallow. This first generation of EG's as defined by Wookieepedia ended with the EG to Alien Species, later we saw a second generation of books along the same subject lines updated and re-branded as "new." I didn't pay close attention to this second generation as it largely came during the Dark Times of my personal fandom. My return to the Essential Guide line came with 2007's Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force by Ryder Windham.

The addition of new original content as well as a gigantic leap forward in the artistic illustrations in the books really began for me with the Essential Guide to the Force. This book was by the breathtakingly geeky Essential Atlas by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, which took fictional stellar cartography to unparalleled heights.

As a Star Wars book nerd, my most anticipated EG book is Pablo Hidalgo's forthcoming The Essential Reader's Companion. That being said, Del Rey's Star Wars Facebook page has been releasing sneak peaks of The Essential Guide to Warfare's artwork for awhile now and my excitement has been slowly building.

What authors Jason Fry and Paul Urquhart deliver in this book far exceeded my expectations and sent my inner fanboy into fits of giggles.

The Essential Guide to Warfare reads like an exceptionally well done college history seminar textbook. You have a mixture of secondary source accounts, primary source excerpts along with a historical narrative and technical discussion. It is the synthesis of all these elements that comes together so well.

Before I go any farther it would be a shame not to mention the many artists who contributed some really imaginative and fun pieces of art to this book. Much of this books impressiveness is do to the work of;
Drew Baker, Tommy Lee Edwards, Ian Fullwood, Ansel Hsiao, Stephan Martiniere, Modi, Jason Palmer, Chris Scalf, Dave Seeley, Darren Tan, John Vanfleet, Bruno Werneck, and Paul Youll.

The book covers the entire span of conflict in the Star Wars universe from its earliest beginnings to the events in Dark Horse Comics' Legacy series. Mixed into the overall historical narrative there are detailed break downs of the ships and technology of war, profiles of important military leaders, detailed campaign maps and a bit of gallows humor thrown in for fun.

There is a tremendous amount of character depth and world building going on in this book, by creating in-universe primary source documents and secondary source accounts we get facts that had previously been created in various sources from role-playing guides to novels coalesce to give you what feels like the author's where sitting between the stacks of the Celebratus Archive at Obroa-skai juggling sheets of flimsi and data-tapes.

Without giving away all the goodies in the book, there were a few sections that made me totally geek out; the inclusion of D'harhan, Han Solo, the Ewoks, and Kal Skirata made this a tremendously enjoyable read.

Hardcore Clone Trooper, Mandalorian and Republic Commando fans will be most happy, we may not have gotten Omega Squad, the Null-ARCs or the Mando training sergeants in The Clone Wars animated series yet, but .... Go buy The Essential Guide to Warfare and you may still be grinning like this impressed fanboy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best Star Wars Guides Yet 31. Juli 2012
Von Skuldren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare is one of those reference books every Star Wars fan should read. While Guide to Warfare isn't quite on the same reference level as say the Star Wars: The Essential Atlas, it's not a book you should skip. First off, this book gives a very nice overview of all the wars and conflicts that have plagued the galaxy far, far away. Wars have a way of shaping people's lives and the worlds they live in. The history that this book covers helps readers better understand the events that have led up to the films, television shows, books, and comics. It's also includes a lot of bonus material that helps keep things from feeling too much like a text book. Plus there is a ton of wonderful artwork strewn throughout.

Starting with the artwork, there is some truly gorgeous scenery. This is easily the best illustrated Star Wars guide book to date. Images vary from people to places to ships. From a meeting with Dooku showing off the plans for a Scorpenek droid to the Separatist leaders, to Palpatine and a convocation of the Grand Admirals. The artwork is as pleasing to the eye as it is surprising.

Inside The Essential Guide to Wafare, you'll also find some really nice highlight features. There are special war portraits for notable individuals, armory and sensor profiles focusing on the weapons, ships, and technology involved in each conflict, some awesome maps by Modi showing the Alsakan Conflicts, major shipyards of the galaxy, and the Imperial Remnant. There are also features that focus on military ranks, rosters, unit sizes, ships classifications and sizes, and even a list of fighter pilot slang. All of them are very useful reference material. My one gripe would be there's not an easy way to go back through and find them because those special extras aren't specifically listed in the table of contents and they are scattered throughout the book. Still, it's very nice to have them.

Comparing The Essential Guide to Warfare to the guides that have come before it, it has both it's pros and cons. On the plus side, Guide to Warfare has some great illustrations, maintains a good entertainment value, and still packs in a healthy dose of reference material. The cons are mostly trade offs. To increase the entertainment value, a bit of the reference value was lost. The fun narratives take up page space that could have gone to more informative yet dry text. It would have also been nice to see more, but it's so easy to ask for more and never be content with what you have. As large as the Star Wars Expanded Universe is, it's impossible to fit it all into one book. Nevertheless, the authors did an outstanding job of cramming the EU into this one guide in a way that collects existing info and presents new material. As a book that both experienced and inexperienced Star Wars geeks can enjoy, this is a great book for all fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb-- Any Star Wars fan's dream! 28. April 2012
Von SuperT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
There's something to be said about a franchise that not only inspires countless tales, but inspires textbook-like volumes cataloging the exploits of the major (and minor) players in the battles of that galaxy far, far away. In this book you will find in-universe excerpts from soldiers and generals alike, spanning the entire Star Wars saga and involving the Jedi, Empire, Mandalorians, and almost any other group you can name. The book details the most important battles taking place all over the Star Wars timeline, from 25,000 years before A New Hope to over 100 years after Return of the Jedi. With breathtaking, full-color artwork from some of the most skillful Star Wars artists, this book is a must-have for any fan!

5.0 von 5 Sternen What I've come to expect from the Essential Guides 30. April 2012
Von Brian Mess - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As can be said of the The New Essential Chronology or The Essential Atlas of the same series, the artwork is spectacular and the information is instructive even for hardcore fans such as myself. Further, small original narratives add a great deal to the ambiance and enjoyment of the work. No buyer's remorse at all for this product, great for any fan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen All is fair in love and war 10. August 2013
Von wakeupfreddy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First of all, let me thank the authors for taking the time and effort to put so much thought and work into this book. The cover art gives off the exact idea of what you expect to find within each page. The style of writing is a Fictitious Non-Fiction book which describes, in great detail, all of the different conflicts throughout the history of the Star Wars Universe.

I cannot believe the depth this book furnishes. While reading this, I could not comprehend the imagination and time the author put into this work. A definite must read for Star Wars lovers and those who want to familiarize themselves with Star Wars. I guess there's a reason they call it 'Star Wars'.
