Default Legion, need help understanding!!

Hello just wondering if people can help me with something : )

Just finished reading latest Horus Heresy book Legion, as far as i know the Alpha Legion turns traitor due to them being a CSM chapter in the game. At the end of book (dont want to give spoilers) why does all that happen? are the alpha legion doing all that because they are actually traitors? or is there some reason why attacking the fleet is in the interests of the Imperium?!

really really confused lol please help me understand the actions of the Alpha Legion

They were given a choice

1. FIght for the emperor, and Hourus will win, but will enslave the galaxy, and BURN it all, cause he regrets what hes done

2.Fight for Horus, and he will loose, but mankind will live for another 20k years

So basically, they did what was best for The Emperor, by going traitors

well this is what I got out of it, =)

Wait a second those wernt the options were they?!

thought they were this:
1. Fight for the emperor and stop horus which will send humanity into a slow decay for 20 k years till all universe dies etc

2. Fight for Horus and then traitors will win and Horus in his self hating rage will destroy humanity and with it Chaos thus saving the rest of the universe etc

going to go and re read last chapter to check

but at the end Alpharius defs says what we do now is for the emperor as in going to fight for him i thought...
