My Recommendation

If I were teaching a course on military strategy, this would be one of my textbooks. The authors rightfully decide that abstract and difficult theories of the business and ethics of war are hard to understand, and everyone comes to the subject with their own biases of country, history and experience. Applying theory to a fictional universe with established right and wrong sides that most people around the world have some exposure to helps immensely. If you want to talk about the theory of rebuilding places after a war to prevent further conflict, rebuilding Endor is a politically neutral subject. Even the casual Star Wars fan can read this just as an exploration of the universe that is more interesting than the Phantom Menace and still learn from it.  The subjects are well argued and easy to follow.
