EU Cantina has posted a very nice interview with Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare author Jason Fry. The interview covers how the project went from Karen Traviss to him, what didn’t make the cut, as well as the reason for the name change…

“The far bigger reason was that I thought “Military” sounded like a book that would be really heavy on hardcore quantitative stuff — unit organizations, warships specifications, fleet data, and so forth. I have immense respect for that way of looking at the subject, but I wasn’t interested in writing that kind of book — and, frankly, I thought the audience for such a book would be relatively small.

I was interested in widening the focus beyond numbers and specifications — I wanted to look at history, and military philosophies, and personalities, and to keep shifting the narrative back and forth between historical overviews and in-universe documents and individual soldiers’ stories. Titlewise, “Warfare” felt like a much better fit for that approach.” -Jason Fry
