DESCRIPTION
Great Space Battles is one of a collection of four large format illustrated science fiction books whose setting is the Terran Trade Authority (TTA). The books formed a connected space-opera milieu, describing the future history of mankind's expansion into the galaxy, presented in the guise of official handbooks by the trade organization from which the setting takes its name. This book is divided in two parts: The Laguna War: A novelette about an interstellar war between Earth and Laguna (Beta Hydri) in 2219, and a set of very short stories mostly about exploration of dangerous planets and minor battles.
