Disney and Star Wars know they have lots of timeline to fill to explain what happened in the Star Wars universe between Episodes VI and VII.
Towards that they are working on dozens of books, over the next few years, to help and fill the gaps.
Once such book is Star Wars: Battlefront II: Inferno Squad, by Christie Golden.
It begins the tale of Inferno Squad, an elite Imperial unit, shortly after the Death Star plans have been stolen, as seen in Rogue One.
Inferno squad has been given the assignment of infiltrating and then destroying The Partisans, who were created by Saw Gerrera.
Despite his death, The Partisans have continued his legacy of extremist actions to hurt the Empire.
The members of Inferno Squad must stop them without being discovered, no matter what it takes.
Star Wars: Battlefront II: Inferno Squad is set for release on July 25.
Inferno Squad is also the focus of the upcoming video game Star Wars: Battlefront II.
The game is set immediately after the destruction of the second Death Star in Episode VI and will be released on November 17.
