‘The Malazan professional soldier is the deadliest weapon I know. - Nil to Duiker

„The Malazan Army shall know but one set of rules,“ Empereror Kellanved had proclaimed, during the first 'cleansing' and 'restructuring' of the military early in his reign. 'One set of rules, and one ruler…' His and Dassem Ultor's imposition of merit as the sole means of advancement had triggered a struggle for control within the hierarchies of the Army and Navy commands…'

The Malazan Armies are primarily involved in conquering new territories for the Empire. Throughout a campaign, they engage the defending armies of other nations, usually with the objective of suberting that nation into a new Imperial province. Such offensive campaigns include the conquest of Quon Tali, Seven Cities, Korel and Genebackis.

Unit Structure

Army
  • They can engage in large-scale offensives by themselves, or take part in a campaign with several other armies acting under the overall command of a High Fist or the First Sword. Armies are the largest cohesive unit - most Armies keep their sub-units together and remain distinct from other Armies. They are commanded by Fists or High Fists.
Legion
  • Comprised of several companies, there are generally only a few Legions in the largest of Armies. A Legion consists of several companies and are commanded by Fists.
Company
  • A unit consisting of a large number of squads (ex: twenty-four squads per Company in the 14th Army) and forming part of a Legion. They may be generalized - having squads of various types - and equally suited to a number of roles, or be specialized - having squads of only a single type - and intended for a particular function. Several Companies comprise a Legion. They are commanded by Captains and seconded by Lieutenants.
Squad
  • The smallest unit, consisting of between a handful of soldiers to up to a dozen. Traditional Imperial training develops the ability of a squad to function effectively on its own, without the need for an organized role within a larger unit. They are commanded by Sergeants and seconded by Corporals. It is also common practice to group a handful of squads under the command of a Lieutenant.
