Where can we get the canon backstory?

I hoped to catch the back story for this stage of the SW universe the story before this game starts..hopefully without too many spoilers for plot events to come. I am familiar with alter events in the SW universe, I own the Farlander Papers and have played most of the games but i was not sure of the history and events that led to the state of the Universe in this part of the story.

Is there a place we can read up on that? i have been reading the various articles we get as the game proceeds but am a bit foggy about the time line..and hope to understand it well so i can enjoy the unfolding of the plot.

Any suggestions for this...would be much appreciated.

I found this in the wiki:

The story takes place in the Star Wars fictional universe shortly after the establishment of a tenuous peace between the re-emergent Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, 300 years after the events of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic games, and more than 3,500 years before the events in the Star Wars films. The Jedi are held responsible for the success of the Sith during the devastating 28-year-long Great Galactic War (which led to the Treaty of Coruscant prior to the Cold War), and thus choose to relocate from Coruscant to Tython, where the Jedi Order had initially been founded, to seek guidance from the Force. The Sith control Korriban, where they have re-established a Sith Academy. The game begins as new conflicts arise.

but i hoped for more detail on some of those events...the Great Galactic War, the Treaty of C, the Cold war etc. as long as it does not spoil the plot coming ahead.
