I second the nomination of the Gaunt's Ghosts series because of a) its take on the galaxy of war from a man's prespective - as opposed to an alien's or Space Marine's - making it easier to relate; and b) Dan Abnett's statues as far and away the best Black Library author. I'd also recommend his Eisenhorn trilogy as a take on the milieu outside the standard warfare stuff.

Eisenhorn is very good. Don't get attached to anyone.

I think thats one of the things I like most about the WH40K universe that I know of. It has to be one of the grimmest and most...well realistic view of war that I can think of.
