The commentary is quite a bit of a stretch. "but they lose so much in the beginning of this battle" One casualty is not losing. "But never do they actually overcome them." Yes they do. They capture the last group of imperials and blow up the shield generator. That's a huge win if you ask me. Gonna have to disagree with the author and say this fight was not believable in the slightest. It even took 7 year old me out of the story as I knew what I was watching was way over the top. I also disregard the Vietnam war argument as this was not guerilla warfare tactics. This was a direct conflict with the power of the imperials on Endor.
