The North Korean People’s Army has crossed the 38th Parallel and invaded South Korea, viciously ambushing a routine American convoy. The shocking news reaches the beaches of Hawaii, where Captain Mark Isen is a 27 year old second-generation professional soldier. Commander of C Company, part of a light infantry division and like most of his peers, he’s never seen combat. The Army’s lightest, most mobile units are rushed to Korea. Charlie Company gets there weeks ahead of the Army heavy forces and in a matter of days, Isen’s men are at war. And when the front-line grunts of C Company are exposed to the white heat of battle, Isen knows, before the first engagement is over, that his men will be outnumbered and outgunned in every battle they fight.
