Hello all,

Does anyone have any recommendations for good books / resources about the different ships that appear in X-Wing / Armada? I would like to find out more about the ships, battles and strategies depicted in these games and movies.

I have compiled a list of books that seem to cover these areas - see my list below. There are a bunch of books that have cross-sections and schematics and then visual guides, atlases, general guides and other books on ships and vehicles. I have put these roughly in chronological order.

Has anyone read any of these? Any recommendations or ones to avoid, or other books that would be good to get, or websites?

I am not sure if this sort of post is allowed in the games forum so moderator please move if it isn’t appropriate. I have also cross-posted this in the Star Wars Armada forum.

You'll find a lot of what you are looking for in the Wookieepedia http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

I have read many of those books. They are worth it, in my opinion.

But Wookieepedia is by far the most inclusive. An it has canon and legends information.
