The year is 1947, and World War II rages on with no end in sight.

While on patrol in the icy Antarctic, Radioman Jack Armbruster stumbles upon a cry for help from French spy Gisèle Lachance. Posing as a Vichy diplomat, Gisèle became embroiled in a diabolical Axis plot led by the beautiful but cruel Lady Sigrid Von Thaler of the horrifying Blutkreuz, a scheme that involves talking gorillas, walking dead, and an alien starship strapped to the side of a V-2 rocket hidden in a secret Axis base. Along with the brave soldiers of Bravo Company, Jack must race against time to help Gisèle put an end to Sigrid’s plans before she launches her rocket and gives the Axis an unbeatable edge in the war for the planet’s fate.
