Omnibus of three novels featuring the Imperial Guard - Dead Men Walking, Cadian Blood, and Redemption Corps.
The Imperial Guard: known with good reason as ‘the Hammer of the Emperor’, and possibly the single largest military force that the galaxy has ever seen. The tales of heroism and desperate futility surrounding the men and women of the Guard are many – this omnibus contains the exploits of the famous Cadian and ruthless Death Korp of Krieg regiments, as well as the fearsome storm troopers of the Redemption Corps.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Have you come to bring me back into the False Emperor’s light? Still hungry for more after reading Dan Abnett’s phenomenal Gaunt’s Ghosts, I quickly located the next omnibus about the Imperial Guard and plunged right in. None of these stories are written by Abnett, but they are all worthy to stand alongside his great works. These three books and four short stories tell of branches of the Guard other than the Ghosts, each being independent of one another and while lacking the cohesiveness of a sequential series of books, manages instead to tell of many different conflicts and theaters of war than I had previously seen. Truly, the 40K universe is vast and the Imperial Guard, the largest military force in the galaxy, is spread throughout most of it. The scope of this thing is almost too big to comprehend. For my money, I hope they never tire of making these excellent, and in my opinion, very under appreciated tales of top-notch military fiction. The Black Library completely owns this corner of the Sci-fi universe and I hope they never give it up. These books are lengthy and every time I finish one I just want to go out and get another.
