Format: Hardcover
As most of you already know the Star Wars franchise has released score upon score of books that detail everything from the heroes, villains, aliens and monsters to spaceships, weapons, planets, history and more. For fans of Star Wars you can get books on just about all aspects of that universe to spark your imagination. Battles for the Galaxy is a newer entry into this pantheon of literature, and to be honest it's just a kid's book. For the older fans looking for new insights into the Star Wars universe this book offers abolutely nothing new. For young readers just getting into Star Wars this is a great book to introduce a lot of those cool things the other books go into greater detail from.

You would think from the cover this book would read like a propaganda piece recruiting support for the Clone Wars. However this is not the case. It is a simple play by play book starting from the very beginning of the prequel trilogy all the way up to it's conclusion back in 1984 (heh heh...). The book essentially chronicles all of the battles from all of the movies with general information on how the battle started and how it ended up.

You also get a little background information on the those involved with the battle. This information is actually pretty neat with little spurts of knowledge like where the Gungans get their plasma balls, how connected Grand Moff Tarkin is with the Empire, and how close the Battle of Endor was. In between notes about battles your kid will also get some nifty illustrations showing just about all of the spaceships, weapons and droids that fought in these battles. No details mind you, just lots and lots of pictures to spur the imagination.

The pictures are bright and full of detail. The text is easy to read and in short columns for segmented reading.

Format: Hardcover
Very good Book about all the Star Wars Saga battles. It has the Star Wars timeline, interesting facts about Star Wars weapons, and Star Wars vehicles. Also it has questions about Star Wars battles such as: What is the power of the force?, How can a Jedi fight without a Lightsaber?, and How can you turn around a losing battle?
Overall a very good Book, and I would not pass it up if you like Star Wars.

This is another excellent resource in the Star Wars series. A must have to assist the understanding of the many battles fought during the six movies.

This series of Star Wars books are very hard to keep on my shelves. I have 2 copies of each, and they seem to be checked out most of the time! Good Job catering to children and their interests!
