I have to read a book for school and my teacher said that we can pick a fiction book so I was wonder if anyone knows of any good warhammer 40k books about the Imperial Guard, perferably the steel legion or the dath korps, but if anyone has any other good book then post them, please.

Hear the wip, fear the Broadside.

I'm afraid I can't help you with books on the regiments you mention, but if you are looking for books on the Imperial Guard in general, the obvious choice would be to pick up the Gauntâ€™s Ghosts series by Dan Abnett, the first novel in the series entitled: â€˜First and Onlyâ€™. The books are centred around the Tanith First and Only, which you must surely have heard mentioned before. I am quite a fan of the series myself, which by now includes eight books and a few short stories. It is probably the best description of life (and death) in the Imperial Guard that youâ€™ll ever find, and well written too (in my opinion, at least).
If you are more interested in a light reading, though, I would instead suggest the Ciaphas Cain books by Sandy Mitchell, the first being â€˜For the Emperorâ€™. They are some of my favourite 40k books ever and always have me laughing out loud, so if amusement is was you want, you canâ€™t go wrong with these books.
Good luck with finding a book, and enjoy your reading.
Edit:In my quest to read all 40k books ever published, I have now reached page 17 in the â€˜Eye of Terrorâ€™ novel (one of two softback novels I have yet to finish) with no lasting harm done to my psyche (that I know of, at least.) However, the level of insanity is rising by the paragraph, and considering the comments others have made on this book, I am curious to see if I have the willpower and mental strength to get all the way through the novel. Wish me luck!Originally posted by lord_blackfang@Mar 21 2005, 20:47

Indeed the stories on the Tanith Ghosts are very good and wel written. Dan Abnett (sp?) is not afraid to introduce you to a character, make you fond of them, then kill them off. Nor is he afraid to kill off characters full stop.
I have only read Ghostmaker as my local library doesn't have any others but this is an excellent book on the Tanith Ghosts.
Not sure if there are books on the regiments you mentioned but 'Ghostmaker' and 'First and Only' are great reads. You'll grow to love Gaunt by the end, maybe as much as Rawne hates him
