You’ve seen the Facebook photos.  You’ve seen the art.  You can now read the blurb.  The Essential Guide to Warfare synopsis has been posted on the official Random House site:

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.

As previously reported, Star Wars author Jason Fry is writing a short story that ties into the upcoming Essential Guide to Warfare. Beforehand we didn’t know what the story would be called, but now we know: The Guns of Kelrodo-Ai. The story will star Shea Hublin, who nicely ties in with one of the previews Star Wars Books posted from The Essential Guide to Warfare.

Still no word on the title for Jeff Grubb’s upcoming short story.

In the comments section, Del Rey has dropped some interesting tid bit worth taking note of including a first look at “Callista Abeloth”, new ships by artists Ansel Hsiao, Ian Fullwood, Darren Tan, and John Van Fleet such as Xim’s warships, Tionnesse ships, Hutt vessels, Wookiee Owool Interceptors, and the Anakin Solo Star Destroyer. Plus a promise of Yuuzhan Vong artwork. They also confirmed a third guide to characters is in the works.
