Might get a few more responses in this section, mate.

AFAIR, only Horus Heresy novels such as Fulgrim and The First Heretic cover the Dropsite Massacre in significant, there-in-the-moment detail. From the perspectives of the Emperor's Children/Iron Hands and Word Bearers respectively.

There's also a whole bunch of novels, novellas and shorts, both written and audio, that flashback to or reference the battle, providing a wealth of perspectives from the Salamanders, Raven Guard, Iron Warriors (?), World Eaters etc.
