The first thing to know, this is not a novel. It reads more like a dossier/journal/training manual. It contains rebel communication and intel from the time just before the events of Rouge One, through the planning for the attack on the second Death Star at the battle of Endor. Then in the margins, there are handwritten notes from characters like Leia, Admiral Ackbar, Poe, and Holdo. It fills in some of the fine details of what was going on in the higher levels of the Rebel Alliance and detailing the reactions of characters to events that played out throughout the original trilogy. The details range from picking the bases at Yavin IV and Hoth, to internal communication among the leadership to Luke and Leia going off on an unsanctioned mission to save Han from Jabba the Hutt.
Overall it is really a book that only die-hard fans are going to be interested in. It does not add a ton, or certainly change what is already out there in terms of the canon material, but fleshes out some of what was not seen in the movies or Rebels animated series.
