It seems as though the author suddenly discovered he was nearing the word limit, and had to wrap up the story quickly. No knowledge of the game is required.

Highly recommended if you can find a copy. It’s not all mech-on-mech, however, but I was impressed with the personal combat scenes. Standard tie-in tripe, only to be read if tbunder are curious about the fiction side of Battletech. Aug 31, Jonathan rated it it was amazing.

The world, combat, and mechs did not disappoint. I first read the Battletech series around 20 years ago when Wntscheidung was playing the boardgame that the series is based upon.

The concepts of fighting these incredible weapons is well drawn out here – from infantry tactics to vehicle and even Mech on Mech combat! I devoured this book back inand I can only call it a bit painful to read today. It was written in the late 80’s and you can tell. I loved the characters, the combat was interesting, and the politics weren’t overbearing, as I’ve seen in some of the later Battletech novels.

First off, if you like me came to BattleTech looking for giant fighting robots then you’re going to be Finished: Refresh and try again. The battles are small and personal.

A good starting point, and certainly something fans of the Battletech games should read. Good book, gun read First BattleTech book I ever read, and I enjoyed the story and character development.

Aug 09, Kevin rated it really liked it Recommends it for: As a fan of the setting, I’ve got to say I enjoyed the thnuder. Most lists recommend skipping The Sword and the Dagger, for a variety of reasons, but mostly “because it’s terrible”.


In short if you aren’t a battletech nerd you probably won’t be too into this. I was looking for a fun licensed sci-fi book. If you like that kind of riftt you could do a lot worse. There is a lot of game-established jargon here, but Keith Jr. I never got to experience any of it, not even the tabletop game until much later.

Strap in, suspend disbelief, have fun! BattleTech Universe 1 – 10 of 95 books. The story is an exciting one, there’s some far future, giant robot swashbuckling going on and the imagery put me in mind of my younger days of playing battletech for long hours late into the night, piloting some of the very same mechs detailed in the book.

Otherwise, take the price point for what it means and take a pass–but do look elsewhere for thus wonderful title. Tons of typos and formatting errors came across their conversion of print to digita Decent read, but I could definitely tell this was written 25 years ago, much earlier in Keith’s career.

Dec 26, David Bishop rated it liked it. Bill Keith was raised in the mountains of western Pennsylvania, and served in the Navy as a corpsman for many years. It blew my mind. If I can’t stand it also, I guess Battletech is dead to me.
