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 fight 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 and the Resistance. The history includes design origins, production, and modifications for each Rebel starfighter, and is fully illustrated with numerous photographs, schematics, exploded diagrams, and computer-generated artwork by Star Wars vehicle experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. Text is by Ryder Windham, author and co-author of more than 70 Star Wars books. This Haynes Manual is the most thorough technical guide to Rebel starfighters available, and is fully authorized and approved by Lucasfilm.
Chris Reiff is an illustrator and product designer who has been working on Star Wars for more than 20 years. Among his other recent projects are product development for Anovos and Disney as well as Star Wars product packaging.
"The design is immaculate, the information is fascinating, and I can see myself pulling out this manual during my infinite rewatches of the films just so I can pause every time I see a ship and figure out exactly what the pilot is doing. This guide is wonderfully immersive, surprisingly accessible, and a perfect addition to the bookshelf of any fan who gets goosebumps when they jump to hyperspace."
