As we do a little catching up this evening, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that Del Rey's Star Wars: The Essential Guide To Warfare was released today. Over the past couple months, Del Rey has released a number of incredible art pieces that accompany the writing of Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart. If you're a fan of Star Wars reference books, this looks like it will be another fantastic addition to your collection. Here's the product description refresher from Amazon...
