Page 19, in the section "BLOODY SANTIAGO".

The child hit by thrown coolant is identified here as a boy.  However, in Kevin Killiany's What I Remember Most, the injured child (the narrator of the story) is a girl.

(Or at least, the narrator opens with 'My mother always told me I was a beautiful girl.'  Which implies either a female gender or something a bit off about the mother... :D)
"We have made of New Avalon a towering funeral pyre and wiped the Davion scourge from the universe.  Tikonov, Chesterton and Andurien are ours once more, and the cheers of the Capellan people nearly drown out the gnashing of our foes' teeth as they throw down their weapons in despair.  Now I am made First Lord of the Star League, and all shall bow down to me and pay homa...oooooo! Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

p. 169 / Force Generation, last paragraph

Quote
Unfortunately that disparity in technology (Star League-era tech facing simple 3025 tech, or even Primitive tech) will also have a significant impact upon game balance that Battle Value (BV) that the rules in this chapter may not be able to mitigate.

Maybe some typo?

P. 33 - Command Structure

Reference is made to Polymorphous Defence Zones (PDZs). These were only introduced at the end of the 1st Succession War in response to weaknesses shown in the Combat Region model by the Kuritan invasion. The map on P. 159 is accurate.

the unit that fought and died on Merope is the 5th Pleiades Hussars and not the 2nd.

The 11th Division mentioned should be the 10th Division.
According to page 78 the 11th was removed from the Taurian front.
According to page 79 the divisions that had participated in the attack were the 10th and the 12th.

Rank Equivalency Table / Officer, p.28

- '06' and '07' are both colonels for the AFFS. '06' should be a Lieutenant Colonel.

- '09' (AFFS) is marked as Major. Should be Major General.

EDIT: Lieutenant Colonel should be Leftenant Colonel, of course.  :-[ Praise to Trace Coburn!

H:RW, pdf version, p. 16, main part, first paragraph:
The sentence that begins with: "Craig’s daughter, Tracial, who succeeded him in 2555, ..." is incorrect. Tracial was not Craig's daughter.

As seen on page 23 of Handbook: House Steiner she was his niece: "...Tracial Steiner (Archon Steiner’s niece and an experienced judge)..."
and "...acknowledging his own lack of an heir, Archon Steiner chose Chief Justice Tracial Steiner as his successor."

Suggested correction:
Change to "Craig’s niece, Tracial, who succeeded him in 2555, ...

Historical: Reunification War, .pdf version, page 28, Rank Equivalency Table

- Enlisted chart, TDF column: the rank of 'Lance Sergeant' is completely missing from the chart.
Suggested fix: insert 'Lance Sergeant' as the E-8 entry on the TDF column.

- Officer chart, AFFS column: both the O-6 and O-7 entries are listed as 'Colonel'.
Suggested fix: change O-6 (AFFS) to 'Leftenant Colonel'.
  [Apologies to Demos for correcting his correction, but with the chart being about giving the proper factional ranks, we have to be as picky stringent/consistent about that spelling as the AFFS are .  ;)]

Nuclear Weapons Rules, Secondary Effects

"...electromagnetic interference (EMI) for the remainder of the scenario, including a +2 to-hit modifier for all Ranged Weapon Attacks and a –2 modifier to all Missile Hits Table rolls."

This appears to be the same as the TacOps rule (TO page 55) so that should be the Cluster Hits Table.  If it's not supposed to be the same effect, the title is still wrong but a note needs to be added that it only affects missile weapons.

Dieron regulars are an anachronism. There was no dieron military district yet and it is not shown on the map.

References to the 3rd dieron regulars: p 107, p 121, p 123, p 141,

References to organization as a whole: p 182

Could perhaps be switched to Benjamin regulars or used as an oportunity to introduce pesht regulars

H:RW, Pdf, page 35: DCMS:
In the section about Command Structure, there are references to five warlords and five military districts. This is incorrect, since it should be four in this time period, no Dieron district. The relevant lines: " These five warlords report directly to the Coordinator, ..." and "Each of the five military districts fielded its own “regulars” regiments, ..."

Suggested corrections:
" These four warlords report directly to the Coordinator, ..." and "Each of the four military districts fielded its own “regulars” regiments, ..."

The following sentence is incorrect: "When the need for a military officer to head up the Rim Worlds campaign arose he was elevated

  All errata come from the first 'printing' .pdf of Historical: Reunification War.  All quotes taken directly from text, with the problem in bold text.  Problems and suggested fixes follow the quotes.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.6, left-hand column, "La Villette" section, second paragraph
An armored trooper with the Steiner fist sigil on his chest below the lopsided Cameron Star had had moved to block her path, his left hand outstretched and his right cradling a wicked-looking rifle.
(Repeated word.)

Suggested correction:
... below the lopsided Cameron Star had moved ...

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.6 (last word) and p.7, first line
"Second, story just to the left..."
(Apart from the awkward comma, the wrong word is used.  A 'story' is a work of narrative; 'storey' is the correct architectural reference.)

Suggested correction:
Second storey, just to the left...

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.7, right-hand column, first full paragraph.
“Fine by me. I hate the day-to-day business. The union reps can be tedious. Watch out for Brendan Sai — he’s the actors rep and as tedious as any diplomat.”
(Missing apostrophe - should be a possessive form.)

Suggested correction:
... Watch out for Brendan Sai — he’s the actors’ rep ...

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.7, right-hand column, third full paragraph, last line.
... Hell, she’s half my age but was eying me like a lamb to the slaughter.
(Ian Marik is thinking about this as it's happening; shouldn't he be thinking in the present tense?)

Suggested correction:
... Hell, she’s half my age but she’s eying me like a lamb to the slaughter.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.7, right-hand column, "La Villette" section, last paragraph
An Elsie? “I hope you don’t mind miss. You looked a tad thirsty.” Oh God, Alice thought, taking in the precise clipped tones. Davion.
(Missing comma.)

Suggested correction:
“I hope you don’t mind, miss. You looked a tad thirsty.”

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.8, left-hand column, second paragraph
“Looking for respite from the days travails.”
(Missing apostrophe - should be a possessive form.)

Suggested correction:
“Looking for respite from the day’s travails.”

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.9, right-hand column, last long paragraph
... He glanced up at the Griffin that had resumed its bombardment of the crippled ’Mech. Typical, he thought. Not a jot of thanks
(Missing punctuation - you need at least a full-stop to close the sentence!)

Suggested correction:
Not a jot of thanks.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.9, right-hand column, half-way down
“And your McKinneys was drugged.”
(Missing apostrophe - should be a possessive form.)

Suggested correction:
“And your McKinney’s was drugged.”

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.19, main text, leading paragraph (started on p.18), last sentence
So far as Kurita was concerned, the peons of the Periphery be made to bow before the betters in the Star League.
(Missing words, 'had to'; also, 'betters' is a comparative, but using 'the' strips it of its subject.)

Suggested correction:
... the peons of the Periphery had to be made to bow before their betters in the Star League.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.19, main text, "Bloody Santiago" section, third paragraph
... fearing for her life, the MechWarrior opened fire with the ’Mechs weapons.
(Missing apostrophe - should be a possessive form.)

Suggested correction:
... opened fire with the ’Mech’s weapons.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Quote from: p.20, main text, "To The Brink: The Pollux Proclamation" section, first paragraph
With her state in crisis, Archon Viola’s stance shifted toward support the hawkish camp, leaving Marion Marik and Ursula Liao in the minority.
(Missing word, 'for'.)

Suggested correction:
... Archon Viola’s stance shifted toward support for the hawkish camp, ...

Suggested correction:
  Shift the Barracuda mount’s ammunition brackets onto a seperate line at an inset, consistent with all other ammunition-using weapons in the stat-block.  This will put all of the numbers (and the Class entry) at their proper tab-spacings.

Rinalla Centrella: Young and flighty, Rinalla Centrella has negligible military skills but inherited her mother’s political instincts. Few who encountered her during the Reunification War or early post-war era, but her steel began to show in the late 2590s and she was a popular and strong Magestrix upon the restoration of civil government in 2604.


There's something missing here but I can't offer a definitive correction it could be:

Meanwhile, his ground troops landed and, with aerospace support, secured Fort Ustin ... Drummond maintained total aerospace supremacy, and her reconnaissance units ...
  Is General Sibel Drummond a man or a woman?  Because in the space of these four paragraphs, pronouns referring to Gen. Drummond change gender three times; the top paragraph of the right-hand column even makes the change from male to female between the first two sentences!  This generates needless confusion.  Pronouns throughout the entire passage referring to Gen. Drummond need to be consistently all-male or all-female.

The original Gallants fielded in the Third Andurien War were very similar to the Reunification War model but did not feature CASE (which was added in the 2570s after the Free Worlds joined the Start League in lieu of armor).

The Taurian Guard
Charged with the defense of the Hyades Cluster, the three regiments of the Taurian Guard held the line against the Star League advance for four years, inflicting losses measured in the tens of thousands. The survivors merged together
to form the single regiment that has served honorably since.

Actually there were 5 regiments of the Taurian Guard and according to the deployment tables (p.  144-147) the 1st and 5th were in the Hyades Cluster, the 4th was on Illiushin until the end of the war, the 2nd was destroyed on Diefenbaker in 2581 and the 3rd was destroyed on Sartu in 2586.   

Correction- Originally composed of 5 regiments, the 1st and 5th Taurian Guards were assigned to the the defense of the Hyades Cluster, where they held the line against the Star League advance for four years, inflicting losses measured in the tens of thousands.

There are some major problems with the TDF unit listings- per page 44 the TDF had 33 mech regiments in 2575.  The map on Page 64 shows the deployment location of 24 mech regiments- 9 are missing.  The map also does not match up with the deployment tables (p.144-147).

The following units are shown on the map but are missing from the deployment tables - 13th, 15th, 59th & 64th Concordat Chasseurs.  The 30th, 50th, 69th & 74th Concordat Chasseurs are on the Deployment table but are missing from the map.  Even in all 8 of these regiments are added to the total we are still missing 5 mech regiments from the 2575 size.

As a side issue to all of this the 82nd Concordat Chasseurs which formed in 2578 in the Pleiades Cluster should also be shown on the map as it is dated 2578.


The Taurian Concordat map on page 64 is missing "Desolate Plains".  The system is at the intersection to the right of Midale and below Lindsay.

It is also missing from the map on page 158-159.

  All errata come from the first 'printing' .pdf of Historical: Reunification War.  All quotes taken directly from text, with the problem in bold text.  Problems and suggested fixes follow the quotes.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

  Per this Ask the Writers thread: throughout the .pdf, the 'rebel' anti-Amaris faction in the Rim Worlds Republic is consistently referred to as the 'Rift Republican Army'.  To avoid a continuity clash with previous references in other products, including Handbook: Major Periphery States, all such references should be changed to 'Rim Republican Army'.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

  Throughout the book, the term 'Taurian Front' varies between being capitalised like a noun ('Taurian front') and a proper noun ('Taurian Front').  It might be best if one or the other was chosen and used consistently; I would recommend the latter.

==  ==  ==  ==  ==  ==

Per this Ask the Writers thread: throughout the .pdf, the 'rebel' anti-Amaris faction in the Rim Worlds Republic is consistently referred to as the 'Rift Republican Army'.  To avoid a continuity clash with previous references in other products, including Handbook: Major Periphery States, all such references should be changed to 'Rim Republican Army'.
Or simply add a note that the two have been used interchangeably, as the author suggests.

Not sure if this is really an errata but in this book the New Syrtis class ships are called Carriers (p. 69, p. 220-221) but in TR3075 p. 234 (the Robinson entry) they are referred to as Fighter Cruisers.  I guess both terms could be interchangeable but just thought I'd mention it in case 1 or the other is wrong.

Page 70:
Both the SLDF and the AFFS had closely monitored the Malagrotta system since the incident there five years earlier. While Taurian
WarShips had been seen patrolling the region ever since, they had not returned to the system. Still, IV Corps commander Major General Amar Lagat erred on the side of caution and tasked two strong naval strike squadrons to pacify the system. Encountering no resistance, the Sixteenth Division followed, quickly taking control of Malagrotta, Fontana and a dozen more moons and asteroids with mining concerns

There are a couple of problems here- first the 16th Division is part of VI Corps, not 4th (per deployment table p. 142 and listings on page 65.)  Per the deployment table (p. 142) it is correct that 16th Division secured Malagrotta in 2578.  The commander of the VI Corps is Major General Harmond Vriss.

The correction is:
Still, VI Corps commander Major General Harmond Vriss erred on the side of caution and tasked two strong naval strike squadrons to pacify the system.

There are several issues with the AFFS and TDF fleet assignments.

page 67:
The AFFS fleet at Malagrotta has Leopard CVs in 2573- per TR3057R p. 14 the Leopard CV was not introduced until 2581.
 
Page 69
The AFFS  & TDF fleets at Tentativa in 2577 have Leopard CVs in 2573- per TR3057R p. 14 the Leopard CV was not introduced until 2581.
The AFFS has 4 Aegis Cruiser - per TR3057R p. 142 the Aegis were not reactivated and turned over to the IS states until 2582.
The AFFS has 5 Barons - per TR3057R p. 200 the SLDF did not turn the Barons over the IS states until 2582.
The AFFS has 7 Davion I Destroyers.  Per TR3057R p. 204 all but 3 of the Davion Is were leased to the SLDF during the"build-up to the Reunification War"  Per the Whirlwind entry p. 134, the ships were provided to the SLDF as part of Directive 22, which according to H:RW p. 21 was issued in April of 2575. 

Corrections-
The Leopard CV, Aegis & Baron should be replaced by ships appropriate to 2573 & 2577
The AFFS should only deploy a maximum of 3 Davion I Destroyers at Tentativa.

Not sure if this is actually an errata or an intentional in universe error but I thought I would report it just in case

Page 102
All inhabited worlds within thirty light years of the capital were in SLDF hands, and while the border remained porous to JumpShip traffic, it was a grave psychological blow.


At this time it does not appear that Mangor was captured.  From my measurements Mangor is within 30 light years of Canopus IV so the statement on Page 102 is incorrect.  If this not intended as an in universe error then either Mangor should be captured at this point or the statement should be changed to:

Almost all inhabited worlds within thirty light years of the capital were in SLDF hands, and while the border remained porous to JumpShip traffic, it was a grave psychological blow.

Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy,  p. 141, Outworlds Alliance Front, Deployment table, V Corps (continued)

Issue:

In the entry for 2581, the 43rd Brigade and 45th Brigade of the 15th Division are shown as being on Wiesau. The correct spelling of the planet's name is Weisau. Weisau is spelt correctly elsewhere, and only appears to be in error on this table.

Suggested Correction:

Change the entries on P. 141 to Weisau.

Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, pg. 67, Malagrotta, Taurian Order of Battle

"4 Jumbo-class DropShips (2 escaped, 3 destroyed)"

Issue: Total count doesn't add up.

Suggested Correction:

Given that the Taurian fleet had a total of 10 dropship collars and 6 of them were taken up by Manatees, 4 total Jumbos seems correct.
Reduce either the count of escaped or destroyed Jumbos by one, whichever the writers/TPTB feel is correct.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 42, "Alliance Borderers"
Formed alongside the Alliance Grenadiers in late 2582, the Borderers received their baptism of fire on Cerberus, facing the SLDF’s Fourth and Fifth Divisions. They fought a guerrilla campaign against the Star League divisions for well over a year, preventing the complete loss of the important world.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 123, "Cerberus and the Baby Killers"
Chairman Nordd had placed two full BattleMech battalions of the newly formed Alliance Grenadiers there, supported by a regiment of armor.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 141, "Outworlds Alliance Militia & Pitcairn Legion"
Alliance Borderers: Alpheratz/Lushann (2583), Lushann (2584), Lushann (2585)
Alliance Grenadiers: Alpheratz/Cerberus (2583), Cerberus (2584), Cerberus (2585)

Issue: Page 42 indicates that the Alliance Borderers fought on Cerberus, but the unit deployment tables on P. 141 indicate that the Alliance Borderers fought on Lushann, and that the Alliance Grenadiers fought on Cerberus. Page 123 also indicates that the Alliance Grenadiers fought on Cerberus; no mention is made of the Borderers.

Suggested Correction: Change the mention of the Alliance Borderers on page 42 to Alliance Grenadiers.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 103, "Thurrock (July 2583)"
Most of the MAF navy was employed in the operation, protecting two regiments of mercenaries (Kincani's Dragoons, veterans of Meadowvale, and Force Majoris) as well as the Second Canopian Grenadiers.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 103, "Thurrock (July 2583)"
In a two-day running battle, almost the entire MAF navy was wiped out and three regiments of troops were taken prisoner.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 104, "Canopus (March-April 2584)"
Facing them were six MAF and mercenary units - the Magestrix' Guard, the First and Third Canopian Fusiliers, the First Grenadiers, the Canopian Cuirassiers and The Red Hand.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 104, "Canopus (March-April 2584)"
Elsewhere the MAF came off significantly less well - the First Grenadiers found themselves with their backs against the Thetis River and were systematically reduced by their opponents in the Fifty-eigth Brigade. Only two companies were able to force a crossing and were later absorbed into the Second Grenadiers to make good that unit's losses against the Sixtieth Brigade.

Issue: Page 104 indicates that the survivors of the 1st Canopian Grenadiers on Canopus were folded into the 2nd Canopian Grenadiers to replace losses in the latter unit, but page 103 indicates that the 2nd Canopian Grenadiers were captured at Thurrock and were never on Canopus, while the deployment table on page 151 also shows the 2nd Grenadiers as being wiped out at Thurrock, and not present on Canopus.

Suggested Correction: Given that page 104 states that the 3rd Fusiliers fought the 3rd Marik Militia and the 35th Royal CAAN Regiments and The Red Hand fought the 5th Marik Militia, either the 1st Canopian Fusiliers or the Canopian Cuirassiers must have been fighting the 60th Brigade on the first day. Change the mention of the 2nd Grenadiers to either the 1st Fusiliers or the Cuirassiers.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 94, "The Canopian Campaign"
We're up against whores and deserters. How much trouble do you think they can be? - General William Denning, Commanding SLDF 335th BattleMech Division, 2577

Issue: The quote given is from the officer commanding the 335th BattleMech Division in 2577. The 335th BattleMech Division doesn't seem to exist in 2577, though; the SLDF divisions are in a numerical order within the initial Corps as detailed in the various deployment tables in Historical: Reunification War. The numerically highest Division recorded elsewhere within any of the tables is the 32nd Division (although as a seperate problem, there appear to be two 32nd Divisions). Added to this, although p. 27 details the planned organization and nomenclature of Divisions within the SLDF, none of the Divisions listed in Historical: Reunification War appear to use a designation that includes terms like BattleMech Division, Mechanized Division, etc.

Where the 335th BattleMech Division does exist is within the VII Corps unit roster given in the Star League sourcebook on page 141, but that's set 200 years later. This makes me think that sources got a little confused.

Suggested Correction: Change the title "Commanding SLDF 335th BattleMech Division" to Commanding either the 19th Division, 20th Division or 21st Royal Division, as those are the three divisions within VII Corps that fought the Magistracy Campaign. None of the Division COs are listed anywhere within the chapter covering the Magistracy campaign, so there's no risk of contradictions. Given the fairly arrogant tone taken, the 21st Royal Division and General William Denning might be a perfect match!

Issue: The entry on page 102 headed "Afarsin, Adherlwin, Megarez and Nobel (March-April 2583)" states that that all four worlds were captured within a few weeks in 2583, completing the encirclement of Canopus IV. The deployment tables on pages 148-149 show that Afarsin, Nobel and Megarez were all attacked in 2583, but not Adherlwin; instead, it shows Adherlwin was attacked in 2582 by the 60th Brigade and the 403rd Independent Regiment, and while the 403rd isn't shown as being active in 2583, the 60th Brigade is shown to be attacking Early Dawn. That makes the deployment tables inconsistent with the text, or vice versa.

Suggested Correction: Amend the deployment table to show Adherlwin being attacked in 2583, and as the text on page 105 doesn't specify which units attacked the four worlds, change which brigade led the attack.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 38, "First Marik Militia"
Their bravery in the assault on Tetski, where they served as bait for the MAF forces in advance of the 316th Division's landings, earned the First a unit citation which they carry proudly on their regimental standard

Issue: According to the roster for the invasion of the Magistracy on page 148 and the description of the campaign for Tetski on pages 101-102, the SLDF unit that followed up on the First Marik Militia decoy run on Tetski was the 58th Brigade, part of the 20th Division, not the 316th Division. The 316th Division isn't listed anywhere in Historical: Reunification War. The 316th Division is listed in the Star League sourcebook as a VII Corps unit, but that unit roster for VII Corps is set in 2765.

Suggested Correction: Change the mention of the 316th Division to the 58th Brigade on page 38.

The ages old New Vandenberg/New Vandenburg naming raises its ugly head again, either the system name is wrong, or the other dozens of spellings of "New Vandenberg" are incorrect.  I think the latter is correct, and the TDF maps on p159 and p64 are incorrect, as well as the first paragraph under David Santos, p63, all of which should say "New Vandenberg".

These are all from the tables on P140-156, some of which may not be errata as much as inconsistencies, feel free to remove them if they don't apply
Page 141, 3rd Pitcairn Legion has location as "Lushann/" - I don't know what this should be, the units whereabouts were not described during this period (Perhaps Kennard, Budingen, Bad News, and/or Tellman IV)
Page 142, 16th SLDF Divsiion has location as "Malagrotta/", I think it should be "Malagrotta/Estuan" based on last 2 paragraphs of Page 71.  It also should have "Estuan" removed from the 2584 column.
Page 144, 111st Concordat Chasseurs should be "111th Concordat Chasseurs"
Page 145, Add [D] to end of Illiushin in 2589 for 4th Taurian Guard
Page 145, 1st Hyades Special Services, its location in 2592 is just "Cluster", I think it should be "Hyades Cluster"
Page 146, Remove Sartu from 3rd Taurian guard in 2585 (it was already there)
Page 146, Remove Verdigreis from 3rd Concordat Velites in 2582 (it was already there)
Page 146, Remove Carmichael from Charmichael Volunteer Guard in 2582-2584 (it was already there)
Page 146, Remove Hanseta from Hanseta Volunteer Guard in 2585 (it was already there)
Page 147, Add [D] to end of Hyalite in 2587 for Hyalite Vol. Guard
Page 147, Add [D] to end of Illiushin in 2589 for Illiushin Vol. Guard
Page 147, Add [D] to end of Renfield in 2587 for Renfield Vol. Guard
Page 149, 3rd Brigade Fusiliers of Oriente in 2584, should be "New Abilene" (spelling was wrong)
Page 154/155, change "Jump-Off" in title to "Loyalty" or something else, and perhaps the 2581 column changed to "2581/Jump-Off" for consistency
Page 155, Remove Gotterdamerung from 5th Amaris Legionnaries in 2591 (it was already there)
Page 155, Remove Taran's World from 2nd Amaris Legionnaires (it aws already there)
Page 183, Kossandra's Volunteers have no unit listed on the deployment tables (like other planets do), is this another planet or just assumed for any non-listed militia on planet?
Page 183, Carabineers and Lancers.  The units were deployed in 2582, but the description says they have to reroll equipment available in 2584 or later, 2 years after the unit was formed and got its equipment.  Recommend changing to 2582.
Page 184.  Calderon Guard.  This unit is referred to as Calderon Red Hand everywhere else (except unit list on p65), recommend changing these 2 entries to Calderon Red Hand instead.

And the CCAF Red Lancers are listed on page 34, and page 182, making it a significant unit.  However, that unit isn't mentioned *anywhere* else in the text.

PDF and print version, p176, "Assigning Pilots".

Problem: The text seems to state that the descriptions of the various military units on p181-184 provide experience levels (elite, veteran, regular, green) which will modify random experience level and random skill rating rolls:

Quote
If playing elements from a specific unit, consult the rules provided for that unit (see Reunification War Militaries, p. 181); each unit (and sub-unit) is given a rating of Elite, Veteran, Regular or Green. If playing an Elite unit, the controlling player should add a +4 modifier to the Random Experience Level roll and a +2 modifier to the Random Skill Rating roll. If playing a Veteran unit, add +2 to the Experience roll and +1 to the Skill roll. If playing a Regular unit, apply no modifiers, and if playing a Green unit, apply a –2 to the Experience roll and –1 to the Skill roll.

I cannot find any such descriptions under the title "Reunification War Militaries".  There are rules which provide separate modifiers, but these rules do not specify the experience level of the units or subunits in question.

Solution: Either delete the references on p176 regarding the modifiers based on the experience level of the described units, or insert the descriptions on p181-184.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 136, "Barcelona (April-September 2591"
When the Lyran and Marik corps landed on Barcelona in April 2591 they found the world held by the Fifth Amaris Legionnaires, commanded by Franchetta Wong, a distant cousin of First Consul Amaris.

Issue: According to the map showing the various Rim Worlds Republic deployments in 2581 on page 128 and the unit rosters on pages 153-154, the 5th Amaris Legionnaires were on Gotterdammerung at this point in time as well as in 2581. However, the description of the attack on Barcelona on page 136 has them on Barcelona (it also has the 32nd Armor Division on Barcelona, which contradicts with the deployment table on page 152).

Suggested Correction: According to Mr Hartford's post in this thread: http://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php/topic,30530.0.html he believes the 5th Amaris Legionnaires deployment to be Barcelona, not Gotterdammerung. It would therefore seem best to amend the map on p. 128 and the deployment tables on pages 153-154 to read Barcelona as the deployment for the 5th Legionnaires, not Gotterdammerung.

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 129, "Second Draconis Auxiliary Brigade"
Constituent Units: Second Sword of Light, Seventh Sword of Light, Fourth Prosperina Hussars, First Arkab Legion

Issue: The Fourth Hussars are described various as the Fourth Prosperina Hussars (pages 129, 152 and 153) and the Fourth Proserpina Hussars (page 36, 60). Based on the detail available in Field Manual: Draconis Combine and Field Manual: Updates, Proserpina looks to be the correct spelling.

Suggested Correction: Replace the instqances of Prosperina on pages 129, 152 and 153 with Proserpina.

Marik Militia (4 Regiments), Fusiliers of Oriente (2 regiments), Oriente Hussars (1 regiment), Stewart Dragoons (1 regiment), Orloff Grenadiers (2 Regiments), Regulan Hussars
(1 regiment), Defenders of Andurien (1 regiment)

Quote from: Historical: Reunification War, PDF copy, p. 149, "Magistracy of Canopus Front (2583-2588)"
Orloff Grenadiers/2nd Orloff Grenadiers/3rd Orloff Grenadiers

Issue: As indicated in Field Report 2765: FWLM, the Duchy of Orloff wasn't founded until 2691 and the Orloff Grenadiers were founded immediately afterwards by the Duchy. The Orloff Grenadiers therefore can't have been deployed in the Reunification War a hundred years prior to their formation..

Suggested Correction: These three pages within Historical: Reunification War are the only pages that specifically mention the Orloff Grenadiers. Two Free Worlds League federal military formations, the Atrean Dragoons and the Free Worlds Guards, are unrepresented in either Marik Auxiliary Corps - given the large size of the Atrean Dragoons in 2650 (ca. 14 regiments, with two more planned) and their history of federal service from 2528 onwards, the Second and Third Atrean Dragoons could be reasonable substitutions, particularly as I can't find any reference to either regiment prior to the publication of Field Report 2765: FWLM suggesting little chance of their presence clashing with other published materiel.

This one made me chuckle (being a mathematician myself):

p. 83, side bar: there's NO Nobel Prize in Mathematics, at least now.
Although it's possible a case could be made in the future (after all, a sixth prize for Economics was added in 1969) it seems quite unlikely, as mathematics was already a well-established discipline when the prize was instituted in 1895.
The closest thing to a Nobel Prize in Mathematics is the Fields Medal.

PDF, 1st Ed.

Page 34, "CCAF Stats"
"Prewar Strength (2575)-WarShips: 45...Postwar Strength (2600)-WarShips: 45"

Issue:  In 2582 First Lord Ian Cameron took 100-106 Aegis Is out of mothballs from 2531. Seventy were upgraded and sent to the SLDF, the remaining were given to the Member States. These ships to each House were likely were left off other Houses' stat boxes as well but combat losses disguised them. [TRO 2750 & 3057/3057R. TRO 2750 contains a math error (106-70=30) that 3057 either carried over or retconned the 106 to 100. Assuming 100 is correct, otherwise things get messier.]

Correction: Add in ships as required.  By Field Report 2765 time the Great Houses all appear to reflect those five gifted ships with few variations.  AFFS shows seven Aegis, but they already had at least four prior to the 2577 Battle For Tentativa [H:RW p. 69] so combat losses likely account for the missing especially given how disastrous Tentativa was for them. LCAF shows three Aegis on hand, also easily explainable as combat losses with RWR or DCMS backed "pirates" from the Hidden War.
