As you might expect 'At War with the Empire' collects several stories set during the original trilogy from both the Imperial and Rebel point of view. The stories are set just before and after the events of the first Star Wars film and are all well-told.
The opening story 'Betrayal' is the real standout. Weeks before the Death Star goes online a group of Imperial officers attempt a coup to replace Vader and the Emperor. It's densely written, with memorable characters and exciting battles.
'Princess...Warrior' tells the story of Princess Leia's missions of mercy and how she learned the price of war.
'The Short, Happy Life of Roons Sewell' tells the story of a Rebel general. Based in part on Citizen Kane (Roons Sewell is an anagram for Orson Wells) it quickly paints a memorable picture of the title character.
'What Sin Loyalty' is the story of cloned and programmed Stormtrooper trying to protect his commander.
'The Savage Heart' is a ruthless Darth Vader story.
'A Little Piece of Home' is a bit dull but has some nice scenes for Princess Leia.
'Target Vader' has Vader taking on the underworld.
'Alone Together' shows some early developments in Han Solo and Princess Leia's relationship.
'Idiot's Array' has an early test of Han's loyalty to the Rebellion and more underworld action.
Finally 'The Price of Power' introduces a race of sentient Raptors and a complex battle between the Rebels and Empire for their loyalty.
This book has 400 pages of good to great stories set during my favorite era of Star Wars, I recommend picking this up.

As a long time Star wars expanded universe fan, I had greatly enjoyed the Empire Series when it had been around, though alas I hadn't been able to secure every issue. However, Dark Horse's brilliant Omnibus compilations is the god-send for us die hard fans who can't find every obscure copy. And being a deployed soldier, I appreciate being able to read as much as possible. I can't wait for Vol. 2. A great read and will definitely be in my collection of Star Wars Omnibus'.

I'm a star wars fan, so I'm biased. I got this one since one of the comics included has a reference to Sabacc and I was trying to read about that game. I read through all the stories though (including the one about my card game) and never lost interest.

All though this time table is my least favorite of the universe, this still is an amazing story. The art work is great and the story line is very good.
