Written by noted Star Wars author Daniel Wallace, the book serves as a guide for commanders of the Imperial Military. In-universe authors include Admirals Wullf Yularen and Antonio Motti, as well as General Cassio Tagge and of course, Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin. As with The Jedi Code, Book of Sith, and The Bounty Hunter Code, the book will also include annotations from characters with a different point of view including Wedge Antilles, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Mon Mothma.
From the book:
Aquatic assault stormtroopers, or seatroopers, are deployed on oceanic worlds to pacify threats beneath the waves. The armor's air supply lasts over an hour and is resistant to crushing ocean depths. Underwater mobility is aided by flippered boots and a backpack propulsion unit.
An essential read for Imperials and Star Wars fans everywhere, the deluxe edition of Star Wars: The Imperial Handbook goes on sale October 14. Click HERE to order from becker&mayer!.
