From the Black Library archive, the classic first novel in the bestselling Gaunt’s Ghosts series.
In the nightmare future of Warhammer 40,000, humanity is on the verge of extinction. The galaxy-spanning Imperium is riven with dangers.
In the Chaos-infested Sabbat system, Imperial Commissar Gaunt must lead his men through as much in-fighting amongst rival regiments as against the forces of Chaos.
First and Only is an epic saga of planetary conquest, grand ambition, treachery and honour.
