Say goodbye to Sun Tzu's Art of War Behold Thrawn's Art of War Cue epic war drums Leadership and obedience are the two legs on which a warrior’s life is balanced Without both victory cannot be achievedLeadership depends on information and comprehension Not so obedience Sometimes a commander may choose to share details of his plan Often he may not In either case obedience must be instant and completeSuch automatic response relies on trust between commander and those commanded And that trust can only be obtained through leadership The next guy who is going to declare war on me is going to be really sorry A Stranger in Strange land Chiss Most of the galaxy thought this mysterious race of warriors as a harrowing myth A creation of blood chilling stories and rumorsNow It is no longer a rumor but a fact The empire's navy has found an exiled Chiss while patrolling the outer rims of the galaxy His name Mitth’raw’nuruodo Oh don't make that face Say it with me Mith THRAW noo roo o doNow you are as cool as Emperor PalpatineWe are introduced to many characters Notably Thrawn the Chiss who made a deal with Emperor to get into Empire's Navy We are introduced to Eli a young outer rim cadet who end up being Thrawn's translator and later his aide We also meet Arinhda Pryce an ambitious outer rim miner who vows to rise politically to gain power The story is about power and politics It is about victory and defeat It is about strategies of War It is about principles and the fine lines that one crosses to become a Villain Most of all it is about the in depth personal profile of a great tactical mind For me one of the best parts of the story other than Thrawn himself was the portrayal of Empire Okay Let me explain In the original trilogy Empire was always this big bad wolf for me An evil body of power Yet Zann's is Empire is scarier His empire is filled with politics corrupt bureaucrats racism bribery and pride In short the Empire is nothing but a regular governmentI am a sucker for tactical planning and military strategies Believe me when I say this one got it all thanks to Thrawn I loved the story the politics and the complex yet spectacular characterization view spoilerI was expecting Thrawn to be an actual Villain but at the end of the day he was one of the sane characters in the story When I talked about the lines that one crosses to become a villain I was talking about Arindha Pryce who turned out to be well Selfish But Zahn has characterized her in such a way that we can not even blame her That my friend is where the story wins hide spoiler

One of the Thrawn Star PDFEPUB #194 most cunning and ruthless warriors in the history of the Galactic Empire Grand Admiral Thrawn is also one of the most captivating characters in the Star Wars universe from his introduction in bestselling author Timothy Zahn’s classic Heir to the Empire through his continuing adventures in Dark Force Rising The Last Command and beyond But Thrawn’s origins and the story of his rise in the Imperial ranks have remained mysterious Now Star Wars PDFEPUBin Star Wars Thrawn Timothy Zahn chronicles the fateful events that launched the blue skinned red eyed master of military strategy and lethal warfare into the highest realms of power a. This is a great book I had very high hopes for this book All the ingredients seemed to be in place I remember reading Heir to the Empire trilogy when it first came this ignited my love of reading and since I have devoured everything from the expanded universe What could go wrong with the book they even had Timothy Zahn Thrawn's original creater What could go wrong NOTHING The book is AWSOMEAs much as I loved Heir to the Empire we were never given too much background of Thrawn's raise through the Imperial ranks The fact that he was as non human at the rank of Grand Admiral which was unheard of in the xenophobic Imperial military So he must have been brilliant to stand out or get as far as he did However we never got that part of his story apart from hints This book fills in many of those banks whilst leaving part to expand on for later It covers the highlights of Thrawn's entire Imperial career up till the point of him reaching Grand Admiral On a side note as evil as Palpatine was I have not read anywhere about him being xenophobic himself I am wondering if this is another Tarkin ism that was passed through the militaryThis has then wet my appetite for Rebels Season 3 unless you have already seen this season I would say read this before watching this it should enhance the viewing and provide a couple of links towards the end of the book I think Eli says it be as much as not is not possible to full know Thrawn he is as complex as he is brilliant The thing this book portrays is Thrawn is not evil he can be cold and a military man through and through but he is always aiming his tactics for preserving life and collateral damage I did also like the introduction of the Nightsswan as Thrawns adversery and Eli as a sort of apprentice Towards the end of the book we do get a bit understanding of why Thrawn joined the Empire Even though he is not in the book much I do like that fact the they show Palpatine is not an idiot he is a very skilled tactician as well especially in their last conversationI cannot recommend this book enough even with my sky high expectations this book delivered in every way This is a great book for old Star Wars fans like men and fans getting to know Thrawn for the first time or even wanting background on him after seeing him in the TV series

Boy did I want to like this book than I did A few uick background details prior to his appearing on Star Wars Rebels last fall I had close to zero prior experience with the character of Grand Admiral Thrawn I say “close to zero” because after doing a little research I was surprised to discover that he did make an appearance in one of the “Galaxy of Fear” books from the 90s a series that I remember reading voraciously as a youngster I have zero recollection of his appearance however After YEARS of hearing from scores of EU fans about the sheer awesomeness that was Grand Admiral Thrawn about his uncanny intelligence his calculating nature his overall badassery I’d be lying if I said that upon finally meeting the man himself in “Rebels” I wasn’t a tad disappointed While I dug his “look” and I could appreciate what made him a threat to the Rebels gang there was little about Thrawn or at least this version of Thrawn that struck me as distinct or original Honestly if there was anything that did surprise me about Thrawn it was how eerily similar in personality he was to Grand Moff TarkinI lay all of that out because I want to make it clear exactly what I was hoping for from book My hope was that it would illuminate for me why Thrawn is a character that deserves all of the accolades that he’s had heaped upon him And with Timothy Zahn the character’s creator returning to pen this newest book I had every reason to hope and anticipate that this book would get me jazzed about Thrawn in a way that “Rebels” never uite managedJudging by the star rating I guess you see how well that turned outFor years I’ve put off reading “Heir to the Empire” “Dark Force Rising” and third “The Last Command” Zahn’s early 90s seuel trilogy that or less acted as fans’ seuel trilogy long before Disney did; unfortunately if said books are anything like “Thrawn” in terms of how they approach their narrative I’m thinking that’s a wait I can continue to prolong Look I can appreciate the crispness of Zahn’s prose and the way that he constructs militaristic battle seuences there’s one action scene about halfway through that almost makes the book worthwhile but on the whole I was stunned by just how thoroughly unaffected I was by any of what Zahn was doing here I didn’t connect with any of the characters not Eli Vanto Thrawn’s conscripted right hand man; not Arihnda Pryce who you might recall as “Governor Pryce” on “Rebels”; and especially not Thrawn who to my shock I found here to be even MORE “blah” than he was on Rebels I didn’t care about the stakes and I found Zahn’s writing style to be curiously cold Simply put I just didn’t care about any of it At around the halfway point when I found myself skimming over huge swaths of text I realized this book just wasn’t working for me So overall this was a big bummer for me With Thrawn due back for Season 4 of Rebels I’m still perhaps naively holding out hope that the character can be redeemed for me and that I can still be convinced of his awesomeness but at this point after 20 some episodes and 427 pages of novel I’m not holding my breath
