Tor Books: "The Military Science of Star Wars" - George Beahm


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...

From Star Wars: A New Hope (1977) to Rogue 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 the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, and PublishersWeekly. 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.
