I haven't read any of the Republic Commando novels. I want to read Order 66, but will I be lost without knowing the other novels? How much of the book is actually based on the Clones and their reactions to Order 66, as well as how it was carried out? It always bugged me that ROTS spends like 5 minutes to chronicle the entire destruction of the Jedi. I was stoked to hear about this novel. So what's up, now that some of you have read it?
If you think I need to know the storylines of the other novels in the series to understand Order 66, how about throwing me the Cliff's Notes... like maybe condensed into a paragraph or so, if possible.
