Tarkins Fist one of the all time best Star Wars Fics

One of the best Star Wars Trilogies Out there, in my opinion better than the movies.

What I liked most about the story is that, despite involving Earth, it has that "Star Warsy" feeling to it. Like the two previous trilogies, the story includes historical parallels to WWI, WWII, the Vietnam War, and the Iraq War. The whole youth movement pressuring for reform in the Martian Empire is reminiscent of 1960s America. Furthermore, it's even reminiscent of the British Empire's wars in the Caribbean during the 1790s. Like in the war between Earth and Mars, British commanders began to feel sympathy for the rebel ex-slaves, like Moff Cutler, Cody, and Roblin. I could definitely see this helping the cause of abolition in the Martian Empire, the same way the British wars in the Caribbean helped abolitionists in England in the long run. I understand that historical parallels can be imagined. If not intentional, it does at least show that the story is grounded in reality, at least in the sense that many of the things that happened the Empire-Earth War happened in Earth's previous wars. That just makes the story all the more engaging. Hell, it's partly what made Star Wars so engaging for me because of the history history.

A decision must be made in the life of every nation at the very moment when the grasp of the enemy is at its throat. Then, it seems that the only way to survive is to use the means of the enemy, to rest survival upon what is expedient, to look the other way. Well, the answer to that is 'survival as what'?
