This book is a must read! I enjoy how the chapters are grouped. Part I: Society and War; Part II: Preparation for War; Part III: Waging War; and Part IV: Assessment of War. Each Part has several chapters, each relevant, timely, and well thought out. Part 1 creatively opens with a senator addressing the senate about the need to remember Phase 4 and 5 of operations, post-conflict, for the planet Endor. You wouldn’t have to travel in time to find the applicability of this topic. Half way around the world in Afghanistan provides context enough for this great chapter. In two chapters of Part III: Waging War, I found careful and thought out analysis of two battles in Star Wars, Hoth and Endor. I won’t give away too much, but the analysis of Hoth was spectacular, so much that I now want a separate book on this battle. I think Mr. Liptak properly identified the Empires intelligence failures and failures of command, and correctly identified where the Rebel Command’s decision to evacuate was correct. I never felt more like a novice in strategy then when I was reading Stavridis and Steele’s chapter on how Hybrid Warfare was used in the Battle of Endor. It left me thinking that I need to understand more about the future in the blending of domains and tactics, and how hybrid warfare and the study of it is certainly needed.
What I also appreciate about the concept for the book is the diversity of authors for different chapters that were brought together to discuss the Star Wars. Different perspectives on different concepts, all brilliantly fused together. I will wait for the sequel of this book, Return of the Tactics.
