Dan Cragg and David Sherman are Vietnam vets (one Marine and one Army). They've been writing the Starfist series for a while now. http://www.dragonlibrary.com/scifi/series/Starfist__Dan_Cragg__David_Sherman.php It's interesting that they did a Star Wars book, but it's a good one. Most of the Star Wars books are entertaining but not too accurate when it comes to portrayals of war. These two dudes fixed that issue.
