About this Book

A History of the Galactic War is a historical textbook suitable for middle school students. It covers an important period of Human history, spanning roughly 2037 to 2133, including the lead-up and aftermath of what is now known as the Galactic War. The text offers an unparalleled and unprecedented look at this tumultuous period, including research from a panel of respected Human scholars. It offers students not only a treasure trove of information, but also a gripping dramatic narrative. For the convenience of educators, each chapter includes suggested points for discussion, and references to further reading. An additional Teacher's Pack, sold separately, includes classroom quizzes, instructional aids, and supplementary media. First publication, Earth, 2140.
