The military tales of the French Legionnaire soldier Battron continue! December, 1944. In Belgium's Ardennes forest, Hitler's last gamble on the western front plays out as German Panzer units are assaulting the long, ragged line of the U.S. 1st Army. In the village of Aufenscheidt, a rag-tag group of Allied soldiers are persevering against these attacks. Why the Germans want the seemingly unimportant town is a mystery. But every Allied soldier feels the pressure, including Sergeant Battron. Separated on the battlefield from his French Legion group, Battron struggles to support both his friend Esclaviar who wishes to return to his family, while keeping faith that these Americans fighting by his side will hold out against the German onslaught. But as the Germans gradually crack the outer walls and tighten the noose around the town, the ultimate cost of these assaults will be handed out to each individual.
