From the back of the book:
"Black Widow Company
A Wolf's Dragoons independent command, the Black Widow Company is one of the most famous units of all time: they are reborn from the fires of Blakist treachery to prove to the entire Inner Sphere that the Dragoons are still to be respected... and feared.
A melding of the most elite warriors with the Word of Blake’s Manei Domini cyborg soldiers, the Opacus Venatori - piloting the new cutting-edge Celestial-series OmniMechs - are a hunter-killer force without equal... and they’ve got Wolf blood in sight.
A new series, the Starterbooks are a perfect way to jump into the further excitement of the Classic BattleTech universe. Starterbook: Wolf and Blake provides a short synopsis of the history leading up to the Jihad - the current war sweeping the Inner Sphere - as well as a brief history and personal dossiers on the members of these two elite combat commands. Comes with record sheets for everyone in both the commands, including ten, never-before-seen ’Mech variants/configurations mounting experimental technologies. Finally, a unique track system allows players to develop their own scenarios - players will be stomping across futuristic battlefields in no time!
Starterbook: Wolf and Blake is a fiction-bridge between the universe history presented in Total Warfare and the current storyline begun in the Dawn of the Jihad (or Blake Ascending: A Jihad Compilation) sourcebook, while providing a sneak peak at some of the advanced technologies that will premier in Tactical Operations. Can be used with Iron Wind Metals’ Wolf and Blake ’MechPack: Wolf’s Dragoons, Wolf and Blake ’MechPack: Word of Blake 1 and Wolf and Blake ’MechPack: Word of Blake 2."
