The Corps (subtitle: BattleCorps Anthology Vol. 1) is a print anthology of 17 short stories previously published via BattleCorps, and an 18th, previously unpublished story (Destiny's Challenge) that continues the storyline of Destiny's Call.

It also includes a Foreword by the editor, Loren L. Coleman, how BattleCorps came into being; an "About the authors" section at the end; and a collection of BattleMech illustrations in the back.

The cover depicts a climactic scene from one of the stories (Isolation's Weight).

EPUB cover, titled "Warriors"

The anthology was also published in EPUB/Kindle format on 3 June 2010. In this format, the cover title reads "Warriors" instead of "The Corps", presumably an alternative title going with the tagline from the back cover ("Warriors all"), although the product information still calls it "The Corps".

From the back cover[edit]

Warriors All.

The Great Star League general, Aleksandr Kerensky. Colonel Archer Christifori, a man with a score to settle. Nelson Geist, on Christmas patrol. Clan Jade Falcon's MechWarrior Joanna. The Northwind Highlanders. A Sandoval scion. A prisoner of war. An eleven-year-old girl.

They all have two things in common.

A universe torn apart by unending warfare.

A mission, to stand up against the darkness.
