Shield of the Emperor is an anthology re-publication of the omnibus Imperial Guard Omnibus: Volume One, collecting the first three novels, each with an associated short story, in the Imperial Guard novel series.


The Astra Militarum is the largest body of fighting men and women in the galaxy. Drawn from the myriad planets of the Imperium, it is the solemn duty of these grim soldiers to fight the wars of the Immortal Emperor against the many enemies that threaten the very existence of humanity. With incredible manpower, and supported by massive battle tanks and hordes of priests, clerks and engineers, it is an indomitable war machine, the Shield of the Emperor.
