e-Book by Michael A. Stackpole & Aaron Allston
LucasBooks/Penguin Random House ( [US] )

These stories occur between 6 and 45 years after the Battle of Yavin:
They are sleek, swift, and deadly. They are the X-wing fighters. And as the struggle rages across the vastness of space, the fearless men and women who pilot them risk both their lives and their machines. Rebel hero Wedge Antilles knows the grim truth—that even with the best X-wing jockeys in the galaxy, many will not survive their near-suicidal missions. But nothing matters except defending the Alliance against a still-powerful and battle-hardened Imperial foe in a last-ditch effort to control the stars.
The X-wing/Wraith Squadron adventures comprise one of the most popular series in the Star Wars Legends universe, and now these ten thrilling novels are together in one convenient ebook bundle. Featuring galactic intrigue, hair-raising dogfights, and a diverse group of pilots determined to fight the good fight, this riveting collection includes all ten novels: Rogue Squadron, Wedge's Gamble, The Krytos Trap, The Bacta War, Wraith Squadron, Iron Fist, Solo Command, Isard's Revenge, Starfighters of Adumar, and Mercy Kill.
