Loading campaign save crashes to desktop

I've been playing the Imperial campaign now and I am pretty far in. Today my game crashed to the desktop without error when I was changing deployment order for a battle against an invading chaos fleet. Now when I try to load the auto save or even the main campaign save, it partially loads showing the UI but then exits to the desktop without error. So I can no longer continue my campaign.

0_1554567955550_Pre-battle auto save.sav

The crash and logs folders are empty so I had none to include.

Disregard this.. after I backed up my saves and reinstalled the game, it is now loading in without issue.
