They said the war would be over by Christmas, that was two years ago. Follow the stories of five characters as they desperately fight for every breath in humanities darkest hour. Only the strongest will survive as they battle their way through mood, blood, and cold hard steel. The trenches are unforgiving. The emeny more-so. Falter, and it could cost you everything. In a war where a single life is isignificant. Where brother kills brother, friend kills friend. There is no room for kindness. The only hope to survive mankinds bloodiest hour is through the ruthlessness and determination of those poor souls forced to battle as pawns while the so called generals cower within their concrete bunkers.
