The Battle of Tukayyid is a digital and Print on Demand anthology of the nine short stories of the Battle of Tukayyid series that were published as companion pieces for the BattleTech: Battle of Tukayyid sourcebook. A new Introduction by John Helfers describing the background behind the development of the stories is also included.

From the back cover[edit]


On 1 May 3052, twenty-five Galaxies from seven Clans clashed with twelve armies of ComStar's Com Guards on the pastoral planet of Tukayyid. For twenty-one days, one of the largest campaigns in BattleMech warfare unfolded to decide the fate of the Inner Sphere.

The Battle of Tukayyid is one of BattleTech's most pivotal conflicts. Now, explore this crucial campaign through eight different points of view—from the enigmatic ComStar, whose relatively untested forces are the Inner Sphere's last defense against the seemingly unstoppable Clans, to each Clan, as their leaders and MechWarriors attempt to achieve victory on their own terms.

The fate of the Inner Sphere hangs in the balance... and it all comes down to one planet...
