Summary

A Warhammer 40,000 audio drama collection.

The Imperial Guard represent the very best of mankind - its indomitable spirit, ordinary men and women refusing to give up in the face of all the horrors of the galaxy. 

Listen to it because: In this collection, you'll discover seven tales of the heroes of the Astra Militarum, from stalwart Elysian Sergeant Zachariah to the larger-than-life Commissar Cain.

The story: Across the war-torn galaxy, the Imperial Guard are a bastion against the enemies of mankind. From the elite veteran drop troops of Elysia to the fierce Catachan jungle fighters and from Valhalla's ice warriors to the crews of mighty battle tanks, the many regiments of the Astra Militarum defend the Emperor's realm against all who would tear it asunder. This audio drama anthology contains seven tales of the brave soldiers of the Astra Militarum. A three-part story delves into intrigue surrounding Sergeant Zachariah of Elysia as he faces traitors. Two outrageous adventures of the infamous Commissar Ciaphas Cain, Hero of the Imperium, take him and his warriors into danger after danger. A tank crew faces terror in real time, and Catachan Colonel Straken faces cultists on a jungle world.

Too dramatic

This is the second full cast audiobook in this series I have listened to and I really don’t enjoy them, as good as the cast is they over power the story and I can’t engage with what is being told

Out of this world adventure!!

I truly enjoyed this book because it offered me, a relatively new listener a valuable insight into other authors that write about the 40K universe, besides stories about my favorite 40K Commissar!

10/10

love these audio books, would've loved to have had Dead Men Walking by Steve Lyons in there but alas still enjoyed thoroughly. I think I've heard the ... Of Elysia stories three times now
