The Battle of Beta-Garmon, also known as the Great Slaughter of Beta-Garmon, was a battle of the Horus Heresy.

The battle was waged towards the end of the Heresy in 013.M31[2] following the infiltration of the Alpha Legion in the Solar System[3] in preparation for Horus's advance on Terra. Waged on the strategically important world of Beta-Garmon which was known as the gateway to Sol, the battle became one of the largest of the Heresy. The traitor fleet was led by Horus himself.[1] Primarch Rogal Dorn ordered the defense of the system and sent many of the Imperial Fist from Terra to join the fight.[3]

Ultimately, Horus was victorious and was able to move on the Sol System, culminating in the Siege of Terra.
