Contested between Imperial and Chaos forces during the Sabbat Worlds Crusade, Cociaminus changed hands so many times, and caused such heavy casualties to Warmaster Slaydo's Crusade force, that many of his inner circle, and those of his successor, Macaroth, called it, "the world that refused to die." Although only the central archives of the Departmento Munitorum can render an accurate figure, it is estimated that, between 760 and 773.M41, over 8,000,000 Guardsmen were killed in combat there - more, in fact, than were lost in the siege of Morlond.[1a]

The initial campaign was promising: an Imperial force under the joint command of Generals Kelso and Forgues reached Cociaminus in 760.M41, and, thanks largely to Kelso's reliance on armour and the skill of the Narmenian 1st Armoured Regiment, overcame three hive cities in six months: Harshen, Bolliqen and Nazeth. Two significant tank battles took place outside Harshen, both ending in victory and cementing then-Colonel Coron Grizmund's reputation as an armour commander.[1a]

Despite these victories, the ground war was long and bitterly fought, and the world was not completely won until 762.M41.[1a] Later, after the resounding Imperial victory at Balhaut, it would be recaptured, twice, by the Archenemy, and the site of three additional Imperial campaigns, each one long and costly, ending with Imperial reconquest in 773.M41.[1a]
