The saga of Gaunt's Ghosts continues in this great value omnibus closing the Victory story arc.
Decades of savage conflict in the Sabbat Worlds has led the crusade to a crucial juncture. The armies of Warmaster Macaroth have fought the Archenemy to a bloody stalemate, and on the forge world of Urdesh a vital campaign will be won or lost that will determine the fate of the war. Colonel-Commissar Gaunt and the Tanith First are amongst the defenders, heroes of the crusade, and the scales appear precariously balanced… But has Macaroth erred in choosing to command this campaign personally and will his plan to divide and conquer the Anarch’s forces end in disaster? Has the Warmaster put himself in mortal danger? What is certain is this conflict, above all others, marks a turning point and the actions of Gaunt and his men will play a vital role in an Imperial victory or defeat.
