The Galtor Campaign is a scenario pack for the BattleTech boardgame focused on the 3025 Battle of Galtor, one of the largest battles of the Third Succession War, detailing the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns defense against the attacking Draconis Combine Mustered Soldiery. The book provides extensive background for the history of the planet and what events led up to the three phases of the titanic three-month campaign along with BattleForce breakdowns of the Davion, Kurita, independent and mercenary units that took part.

The first in the Historical Turning Points series, Historical Turning Points: Galtor would revisit the events of this scenario pack for use in the more modern BattleForce 2 and Chaos Campaign formats.

From the back cover[edit]

The inhabitants of Galtor III, a sleepy little planet on the Davion/Kurita border, had nothing to interest their neighboring superpowers. Nevertheless, the manipulations of Hanse "The Fox" Davion and the bitter rivalry of two Kurita Military District Commanders engulfed Galtor in one of the largest battles in recent memory.

Davion planned to lure a couple Kurita regiments onto Galtor with rumors of a newly discovered Star League storehouse and then ambush the Kurita forces with his own secret reinforcements. Everything went according to plan until five regiments landed and Davion engineers discovered a real Star League installation. Soon Davion units were fighting for their very existence.

The BattleForce scenario set includes a detailed history of the three-month campaign, orders of battle for the units involved and eight scenarios that recreate the pivotal battles.
