They came from beyond the Periphery, attacking dozens of planets in a massive blitzkrieg more devastating than any in the history of warfare. World after world fell before their technologically superior BattleMechs and armored infantry. Nothing in the Inner Sphere seemed able to sop them.

Major Adam Steiner: his unique brand of battlefield tactics earned him a transfer to the prestigious Nagelring War College on Tharkad. No sooner had he left his home world of Somerset than Clan Jade Falcon attacked, easily conquering the planet and capturing his brother, Andrew. Now Adam must forge a ragtag bunch of cadets and misfits into a team in order to retake his home and rescue his brother.

1st Somerset Strikers is the official guide to the BattleTech Animated Series. This sourcebook describes and illustrates in full color every character, BattleMech, and vehicle from the show. Detailed accounts of each of the original fourteen episodes include a complete plot synopsis and special background information, and designer notes offer FASA’s perspective on the production of the BattleTech animated series. A section of BattleTech rules for the equipment and characters in the show, and scenarios based on the episodes make this book a valuable resource for fans of the game as well as the animated series.

NOTE: This PDF is a scan of a print book. It may contain modified illustrations of BattleMechs that are not currently used in BattleTech.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
