Impact of the Clone Wars on Rebel and Imperial Doctrine in the First Galactic Civil War

The Clone Wars was the first major conventional conflict in the Star Wars galaxy after a thousand years of peace. As a result, it had a major impact on how both Imperial and Rebel forces fought during the subsequent First Galactic Civil War – it influenced what some might call ‘the ways of war’ of both sides. Today’s episode features Matthew Ader (@AderMatthew), Ian Boley (@IBBoley), Cory Hollon (@cory_hollon), Eric Muirhead (@StarfleetHist), and Thomas Harper (@thomasLharper). If Twitter isn’t your thing, come join us on Discord! You can read the article on the prequels Cory mentioned here – and go check out the Klingon Academy and Old Man Thrawn as well. There was a bit of a blizzard of academic readings recommended about ways of war – here’s list if you want to follow up in more detail: • Weigley, Russell F. The American Way of War: A History of United States Military Strategy and Policy. Bloomington, IN: Indiana University Press, 1977. • Linn, Brian McAllister. The Echo of Battle. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2009. • Grenier, John. The First Way of War: American War Making on the Frontier. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2005. • Echevarria, Antulio J. Reconsidering the American Way of War. Washington, DC: Georgetown University Press, 2014. • Martin, James Kirby, and Mark Edward Lender. “A Respectable Army:” the Military Origins of the Republic, 1763-1789. 3rd Ed. West Sussex, UK: John Wiley & Sons, 2015. Due to some unavoidable technical issues, the audio quality at points is less than ideal. This is something we will address in time for the next episode – which will cover military education through a science fiction lens.
