War Blade - Banks, an agent of the British SOE, is tasked with rescuing a French resistance fighter from a hidden Nazi bunker. With the help of a German Nurse and a ragtag group of allies, Banks must journey to the belly of the beast. With his commanders already suspecting the bunker to hold much more than prisoners and a group full of fragile personalities to deal with, Banks faces dangers from all fronts. Always outnumbered and outgunned, Banks and his group must use their guile to outwit the enemy and survive the deadly mission.
Fortunes of War – When a covert raid in Normandy goes wrong, a small team of British commandos are cut off from their comrades. Holed up in a barn and surrounded by Wehrmacht forces, their chances of survival appear bleak, until an unexpected discovery provides an opportunity to escape.
