Description[edit]

The appropriately named FedCom Civil War details the largest conflict to engulf the Inner Sphere in over a decade: the Federated Commonwealth Civil War. The book begins with a short story, an introduction, and then a historical synopsis that traces the history of the Federated Commonwealth; from its beginnings in the Fed-Com Accords signed by Katrina Steiner and Hanse Davion, to the secession of the Lyran Alliance by Katherine Steiner-Davion, up to the outbreak of war in December 3062.

The meat of the book is in its descriptions of the battles that involved line units. It breaks the conflict up into chronological "waves", though the the invasion by Clan Jade Falcon is set off by itself. It then follows the battles for each world during the war, including those that were in the Draconis Combine and Jade Falcon Occupation Zone. The source information ends with tables detailing each line unit's move throughout each wave and an atlas that provides planetary data for some of the worlds involved in the conflict. Finally, FedCom Civil War provides limited rules structure for those who wish to run games during this period

From the back cover[edit]

Forty years ago, Hanse Davion and Melissa Steiner were joined in holy matrimony, reflecting on a personal level the joining of their two realms. The superstate formed through the union of the Federated Suns and the Lyran Commonwealth was meant to usher in a new era of peace and prosperity, eventually leading to the creation of a new Star League.

But it was not to be.

Now the eldest children of Hanse and Melissa are battling for control of their parents' legacy. This sourcebook details the long struggle between Victor Steiner-Davion and his sister Katherine, a struggle which raged across two realms and affected many others. Complete unit listings and wave maps show the progression of the war from its initial sparks to its devastating conclusion.
