Jason Fry and Paul Urquhart have posted the second blog post in their twelve-part series detailing the material from their book, Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare, that ended up getting cut before the book was published. Each post in the series features an introduction by Fry and Del Rey Star Wars editor Erich Schoeneweiss.
In part two, they present a historian's take on the ancient animosity between the two factions, the Zhell and Taungs, whose conflict is chronicled in the in-universe epic Dha Werda Verda. Referring to the decision to cut this and other sections, Schoeneweiss says, "The last thing I wanted to do was cut anything Jason wrote, but he was contracted to deliver a manuscript at a specific word count and far exceeded that."
