DESCRIPTION
Space Wars is a dramatic and exciting account of the conflicts which engulfed the Galactic worlds during the first five millennia on the cosmic calendar. The book blends a mix of SF and fantasy artwork with well-written scholarly narrative on the space vehicles, wars and weapons, fantastic creatures, and alien worlds of the Empires of the first three Federations during the Zone Wars. Blueprints and technical specifications of some of the enormous battlecruisers, transporters and artificial worlds are published for the first time. The ingeniously researched text, taken from the records of contemporary journalists and authors, traces the history of these fierce fighting years. A brief foreword by Chris Foss acknowledges how much good SF art is inspired by fictitious wars and weapons. Marvelously illustrated by dozens of artists, including Foss, Vallejo, Emsh Fras, Lehr, Leyzell and many others.
