        Very short version: The Imperial City of Terra is serviced by two space ports, Lions Gate Spaceport next to the Inner Palace and Eternity Gate Spaceport in the Outer. Loyalists get caught out by a bold attack in the worst book of the series which takes Lions Gate Spaceport, unhinging the defense of the Outer Palace and leading to the fall of Eternity Gate Spaceport in the best book in the series, forcing the Loyalists into a costly retreat towards the Inner Palace. The Traitors launch two main attacks on the inner defenses at two of the bastions, Gorgon Bar defended by a space vampire and Colossi defended by space Ghengis Khan. Khan recognizes that his position is ultimately untenable and that as Traitor forces start breaking into the Inner Palace, the Loyalist relief force racing to Terra was going to need to be able land millions of heavy vehicles and tens of millions of troops in the shortest possible time, which meant they needed a spaceport. So he rallied as much of his legion (White Scars) as he could, convinced the commander of this space station that had been hanging around to literally body-block orbital strikes for them, then launched a thunder run straight through enemy lines to re-capture Lions Gate which they held until the relief force arrived.

        I'm pretty sure there's a Siege of Terra website with all of the maps they made for the series if you want to look

          The first murder, committed by the Emperor's uncle against the Emperor's father. I'd argue that Drach'nyen is the echo of the Emperor's psyche rather than the act of murder itself. Drach'nyen is also described as something that the Emperor cannot destroy and which will exist as long as He does. It's not an embodiment of the first murder, it's His dark dark presence in the warp, the flip side of the budding warp god the Emperor is becoming. It's like how Chaos gods correspond with the four surviving Eldar gods. One cannot exist without the other.

      most pivotal moment in 40k at least for the imperium
      chaos knocked out multiple loyalist chapters at the dropsite massacre, resulting in chaos having a significant numerical advantage over the loyalists at terra

      entire fate of the imperium hinged on the battle, since the emperor himself as well as several primarchs were involved
      battle came down to the wire, chaos was literally at the emperors front door and the remaining loyalists were now fighting for individual rooms of the imperial palace but the ultramarine relief fleet had just entered the solar system and would have easily turned the tide in favor of the loyalists

      so it was down to the last seconds of how long they could hold out
      so horus took out an all-or-nothing challenge to the emperor and lowered the shields on his ship to engage him in personal combat
      emperor gets reduced to a vegetable while horus is killed, and the battle of terra is an imperial victory albeit one that sets the stage for its slow crumble up until the 42nd millenium

                Cawl and guiliman sent out fleets filled with Primaris and the STC data to make all of their new shit, plus the new gear cawl developed

                chapters are already mostly self sufficient equipment wise and in 40k everything you really need is an stc blueprint to instruct your forges how to make stuff.
                If they came upon a chapter whose geneline couldn't directly be reinforced by Primaris they gave them the gene tech to create their own Primaris.

This caused hordes of traitors to bypass the sealed Eternity Gate and spill into the Sanctum Imperialis, with Nassir Amit leading a defense against traitors less than 2km from the Throneroom.

                That is quite literally what happened you mongoloid. The Emperor was forced to give up all this power he was taking from the warp because he was going to turn into a god. He flat out says multiple times that it's the only way he can defeat Horus, Pious makes him see that's not a victory at all. The entire point of that scene is that the Emperor is fully aware of what the consequences are and he decides to fight and die as a man instead of turning into a god. It's supposed to be him showing he cares more about humanity than he does about forcing it to turn into what he wants it to be.

                The Emperor used the warp power he was sucking in to rest control of Earth away from the warp, though. Also when He fought Horus, He could have instantly killed him but didn't because he loved Horus. So the Emperor basically just didn't ever need to become a Chaos God. He only considered it out of desperation.

      Started out normal. Used humans and mutants as cannon fodder and astartes as shock troops for important objectives. Perturabo in charge with Angron running amok wherever he can. Take both Eternity and Lions Gate space ports to bring down titans in close proximity to the palace. Emperors Children and Abaddon with Justaerin attempt to take inner palace with a gamble of an operation, fail. Horus fires Perturabo, he gets pissy and takes his whole legion and leaves. Mortarion now in charge on the ground. Titans led by legio mortis break inner wall and cause breakthrough. Jaghatai sallies out and retakes lions gate space port, banishing mortarion and almost killing himself in the process. Corswain arrives ahead of the lion and retakes the astronomican in a gutsy one-way mission. The inner palace is nevertheless breached and the siege constricts and constricts until only the inner sanctum is left. Gulliman arrives in system but the whole place is basically a warp rift. Horus baits Big E, Sanguinius, and Rogal Dorn to teleport to his ship. Horus kills sangiunius casual as frick.

          He was hours away from Sol, but was having trouble finding it because Horus' forces had switched off the Astronomicon: the Lighthouse in the Warp that humanity uses for warp travel. It was only a matter of time before he showed up and broke the seige on Terra. Horus knew he was on a timer and baited the Emperor into teleporting to his ship, which mostly worked until the Emperor destroyed his soul.

    The Siege of Terra was more like a natural disaster than a war, the surface of the earth was constantly scoured and superheated by various weapons of mass destruction. Even if you are an 8ft superhuman in power armor you won't survive long. Your goal is to crawl through the ruins and tunnels, defeat any infantry you encounter hiding down there with you and survive long enough to get close, aim and unload a heavy weapon like a plasma gun at a high value target before you get kchoom'd by something far more powerful.

      This. Emperors Children wrecked absolute shit on Terra and came out with the most slaves and equipment from the conflict compared to any other legion. They picked soft targets they knew that would not be suicide charges and mopped up, they covered insane ground because of it. Them not storming the Palace is not a sign of weakness or cowardice but them understanding that it would be a lost cause and not strategic win by any stretch. Combine their tactical edge, literally fricking high morale and artisan weaponry they were the best legionnaires squad for squad.

          Let me guess, they retconned old lore of them not besieging the palace in the siege of terra books in horus heresy? Frick.

            The Traitor legions and their primarchs were steadily losing control as the siege went on, the Emperor's Children got bored of the slog in the Outer Palace and committed themselves to a rash attack that should've just been handled by a few chapters, and I at least enjoyed Saturnine the most of the entire Siege of Terra. After that the legion basically fricked off to do whatever they wanted, some followed Fulgrim off to sulk, others started roaming the planet doing unspeakably horrible things to the locals (that one scene in the Hive is the only part of the Oll Persson/John Grammaticus story I unequivocally enjoyed even if I still hated them), while others stayed in fought as things started to get more and more deranged.

            Also the description of how reality started coming apart is a really underrated element to the story, you walk down a hallway and go through a door to find yourself a thousand miles away, you walk by a mirror then your reflection jumps out and tries to strangle you, two units launch an attack together and one gets stuck into a firefight for two hours only to get a message that they're firing on the unit who was next to them who'd taken the objective five hours ago and were waiting for reinforcements. Really cool stuff for a midwit like me

        Perty's strategy was working but not nearly fast enough. He was playing into dorn's gambit because the ultras and DA would have got to terra and skullfricked them before he could finish breaking dorn's defenses, which is why Horus took the gamble with the vengeful spirit.

        I really hope that the new story for Dorn goes that he was tainted by Khorne during his time in the desert but managed to keep things under control until the Iron Cage, which was a bloodbath not just because of Perty but because he fell to Chaos and just rammed his face into the IWs, so he had to be purged.

        You can skip an absolutely insane amount of books in the entire 30k series and miss nothing.

        You basically just hit the major lore point books and ignore the rest.

        The entire Siege of Terra/Battle of Sol can be condensed down into maybe 4 books if you really want to know about minor characters (most are irrelevant). The End and the Death could easily be condensed into a single book considering how much absolute bullshit padding is in it.

          Yeah I'm already skipping a few. Onto Prospero Burns now and doing them as audio books to try and save time. Outside of the first 5, I've loved Mechanicum and Legion so far. Anything that has some time for titans really.

            You can skip Titandeath too, that was pretty awful from what I remember. Most of the Primarch books aren't worthwhile either though the one about Alpharius is at least entertaining even if it ruins a joke in 40k.

            What this anon says.

            Read the first books up until Fulgrim and then read whatever plotline strikes your fancy.
            My personal recommendations are the Scars series, the RG books and Unremembered empire series, all in all like 10 books that should get you up to speed

            I'm still pretty mad that pretty much the only interesting part from the Siege of Terra series that felt like it should've been a book was about Katsuhiro. The parts with him just being a regular conscript suddenly being forced into the trenches to fight off waves of beastmen and cultists was great. Much more interesting than an infinite repeating of 'clash of plate'.

              Most of the stuff about the regular people in amongst the shit was dope, I could do with an entire book about the stuff that tank crew from Warhawk lived through. Hell I even liked the early stuff about Mauer, the idea of an arbites trying to keep shit together as the panic sets in and demons start coming out of the walls is awesome.

              Though if I'm being honest, as much as I like the Siege of Terra it's mostly carried by how much I like the good books. The First Wall could be reduced to a paragraph and not much would be lost, and while the premise of Mortis was incredible I felt like I had to force myself through it rather than being excited to get off work to finish. Not to mention that I can't even remember The Solar War aside from the fact that it happened, the whole series could've done with a little pruning

              Yeah they have been good. Thousand Sons made me really like the Thousand Sons and hate the space wolves. Now getting it from their perspective is interesting since they are also written pretty likeable.

          They actually mentioned that Horus's fleet could have just annihilated terra if they wanted to but they had to do a ground invasion because of some warp shenanigan ritual significance of Horus killing the emperor himself, and also so he could have a throne to sit on after it was done

    Since we are comparing favorites, I'll butt in and say that I liked the Solar War probably the most. The space combat angle was pretty well done and I enjoyed the little interlude, like the fresh Sons of Horus recruit who storms the defense stations only to get blasted along ´with it when Dorn decides to sacrifice them.
