We have a lot of Star Wars books in our house. Since I can remember, I have been a fan of them movies, characters & books. I have books that discuss the characters and the storylines of most of the movies.  Even after I have read all of these books, I think this is one of the best Star Wars books I have ever read. It describes in great detail nearly every vehicle mentioned, including spacecraft, landcraft, and watercraft in Star Wars Clone Wars.

The image shown of each of these vehicles are far more detailed that I have ever seen.  Here is an example: 


Each vehicle is shown, every little aspect of that vehicle diagrammed and described. You can find out which class each vehicle is in, the weapons it has, and more.  Cross-sections are provided for some of the larger vehicles. Never could I have imagined what each of these ships looked like inside!

Star Wars fans of all ages will love this book, I promise. You may notice that this book is published by DK. That is reason alone to buy this book! The pictures and details they put in each of their books is amazing! I spend hours exploring each of their books! So go out and buy it (or in my case, have your mom buy it!). I’d love to know what you think!

    I agree DK publishes some fabulous books! My son’s grown now, but I bet he’d still love this book.
