HE IS AS CLUMSY AS HE IS STUPID

Writing earlier this week about how bad stormtroopers are as marksmen made me think about how bad the Empire’s commanders are overall. There are more than a few terrible military strategists in the Emperor’s employ but perhaps none worse than Admiral Ozzel.

You may remember him as the commander in The Empire Strikes Back who was in charge of the assault on Hoth. It was his error in coming out of lightspeed close enough to Hoth so that the Rebellion could prepare for the Empire’s landing that allowed many of the Rebels to escape.

Things didn’t turn out so well for Ozzel following this blunder. Darth Vader force chokes the life out of him. Over the phone. That’s bad.

Some in the massive Star Wars fan community have even suspected that no commander could actually be this bad unless he was doing so purposefully. Was Ozzel really a Rebel spy?
