Monday 5th June 1944. Hitler’s armies are desperately fighting to hold back the Russian hordes on the Eastern Front. In the west, lurking across the English Channel, is a sleeping monster; almost a million men from half a dozen Allied nations, waiting for their moment to strike against German occupied Europe.

Roland Gritz, Max Weimer, Les Downey and Dickie Smithson have all seen action before. Now however, these four men are destined to meet in battle at a nondescript hill known simply as Point 113. Although none of them yet know it, the Gods of War have stirred from their slumber and, come the new dawn, these seasoned veterans will find themselves being used as pawns in the great game, as one by one, they are poured into the Crucible of Fate.
