From the Publisher
The Imperial Handbook
The military ultimately answers to our commander-in-chief, Emperor Palpatine, but our highest organizational body is the Imperial High Command. This committee oversees Naval Command, Army Command, Stormtrooper Command, and all support branches.
The Imperial Army
Since the ancient seas of Coruscant lapped arcadian shores, navies have provided transportation, security, and firepower. The Imperial Navy is still young, but its roots in the Republic Navy of the Clone Wars should come as no surprise. The Republic Navy, in turn, emerged from the Republic Judicial Department’s quiet commerce patrols.
The Imperial Army
The Imperial Army has existed in its current form for less than two decades. Yet we soldiers share a bond with all fallen warriors. Since the first Taung chieftain raised his spear to signal a charge, soldiers have nobly shed blood for the glory of a greater cause.
The Stormtrooper Corps
The Stormtrooper Corps is unparalleled. Do not compare us to the feeble Judicial Security forces that existed in the dying decades of the Old Republic. You must look back nearly four thousand years to the time of Republic rocket-jumpers to find an equivalent corps of elite, first-attack soldiers.
