I've never read military sci fi before and those who are serious minded will claim I still haven't The Ciaphas Cain books take place in the Warhammer 40K universe which for anyone at all familiar with the gaming system will be aware of the fact that it is a very grim place to visit So it's doubly amazing that Sandy Mitchell's tales are such fun to readBefore we get much further allow me to tell you a bit about the book itself It's actually a compendium Within its 700 pages you will find three short stories and three novels It's arranged so you start with a short story and follow it up with a novel Repeat that pattern three times As an added bonus the short stories serve as an introductory to the big nasty Ciaphas faces in the novels They're roughly chronological and they're presented as excerpts from his autobiography with added notes by an inuisitor of his acuaintance For added depth a few sections from other historical works are sprinkled throughout to give a broader view of the ongoing conflict detailed in the storiesOne of the things I liked about the series was that little to no knowledge of Warhammer 40K is necessary A number of vehicles and weapons are discussed throughout the stories but they're presented in context so it's very easy to get a good idea of what a Chimera or a lasgun are like The nasty monsters are presented in vivid detail so regardless of whether the story focuses on Necrons Genestealers or Orks it's easy to visualize what it is Ciaphas and his soldiers are struggling againstIn addition to Ciaphas Cain a number of other interesting characters appear throughout each story One in particular Jurgen Cain's primary flunky is highly entertaining He doesn't actually have much in the way of personality however that is indeed part of his character The way the other characters react to him is what really brings him to life He's as stalwart a sidekick as any could ever ask for and as the story progress it becomes apparent that he is than just a collection of bad odors and skin diseasesCain himself is an interesting individual He claims throughout the stories to possess little to no courage or interest in keeping those around him alive unless in doing so his odds of survival will increase however many of his actions indicate he's complex than this His dealings with other soldiers show a shrewd person with innate leadership skills His manipulation of people which he claims is purely self serving is one of the entertaining aspects of the booksThe only problem I had with the collection was that Cain uses certain phrases fairly freuently This wouldn't be too apparent if one were to read a single novel and then read a second a few weeks or months later However with a compendium I found myself reading three shorts and three novels back to back In that situation the reuse of phrases got a bit annoying However not annoying enough to keep me from putting the second compendium on my wish list

In the war torn future Hero of PDFEPUB #231 of the st Millennium Commissar Ciaphas Cain hero of the Imperium is respected by his peers and Ciaphas Cain PDFEPUBan inspiration to his men – at least that’s what the propaganda would have you believe The reality is very different for Ciaphas. A collection of the first three books in a series of novels depicting the adventures of the bold and swashbuckling political officer of humanities grimdark future At least that is what most of the public believes Ciaphas Cain is in fact a coward often than not out to save his own neck despite being freuently deployed to the frontlines of humanities eternal war His heroic reputation is born from a series of coincidences and careful manipulations that stem as a result from him trying to stay alive against all odds and yet somehow ending up saving the day time and again thus further cementing his undeserved reputation A fun yet grim depiction of a vast unforgiving sci fi universe that I can recommend to any fan of Warhammer Blackadder or high flying swashbuckler novels in science fiction
