The battlefields of the 31st century are commanded by the BattleMech,
twelve-meter-tall, 100-ton bipedal engines of destruction. Fought by
MechWarriors, commanded by neo-feudal officers, owned by national
governments and band of mercenaries, loyal to one of the interstellar
Successor States or the martial Clans, these ’Mechs make every other
ground combat vehicle obsolete.
This is the warfare of fusion-powered giants.
This is BattleTech.
Allegra Greene is no stranger to the military; her father is a general, after all. But when she enters the Nellus Military Academy, she find far more than she expected. She finds a group of friends that will keep her going, training that is challenging, and instructors that push her to the edge and beyond.
Unfortunately, that's not all she finds, and soon the endemic politics and warfare of the Inner Sphere reach the Nellus Academy. Soon, Allegra and her friends are in a life-or-death struggle to survive!
