After the Clone Wars, the Galactic Empire spared no expense to build a massive fleet of warships to enforce Imperial rule, intimidate defenseless worlds, and destroy all opposition. However, the Imperial Navy underestimated Rebel Alliance fighter pilots, who flew X-wing, Y-wing, A-wing, U-wing and B-wing starfighters, and whatever else they could obtain to combat their Imperial enemies. Decades later, Resistance pilots would fly next-generation versions of Rebel starfighters against the First Order...

The Rebel Starfighters Owners' Workshop Manual presents a thorough history of the starfighters that served the Rebel Alliance at the Resistance. The history includes design origins, production, and modifications for each Rebel starfighter, and is fully illustrated with numerous photographs, schematics, artwork by Star Wars vehicle experts Chris Windham, author and co-author of more than 70 Star Wars books.

This is the latest publication in Haynes's Star Wars themed Owner's Workshop Manuals (see also YT-1300 Millennium Falcon, TIE Fighter, Imperial Death Star). For those that collect these books, this is another winner if you want detailed information on just about every aspect of the starfighters used by the rebels throughout the Star Wars franchise.

It's the perfect book to dip in and out of, and perfect as a gift for that Star Wars fan in your life.

You can't argue with the fact that it's incredibly detailed and beautifully presented. At the end of the day it comes down to whether you're interested in more in depth technical detail and background information on the vehicles in the Star Wars universe.
