The Eastern Front 1943. A massive Russian offensive has fragmented the German frontlines forcing them into a fighting retreat back towards the Oder River to establish defensive bridgeheads in an attempt to slow the Soviet masses. However elements of the 1st SS LAH Panzer division have managed to hold their positions within these lines and have withstood the brunt of the Soviet onslaught.
Due to sketchy communications they are unaware that a major retreat has taken place as they continue to press forward into the increasing Red Army hoards, often forced into bloody hand to hand combat. Will word reach these men that they are in fact alone and pushing on in the wrong direction? Or will they realise their situation only to be engaged in a deadly race backwards through enemy held territory strewn with death and destruction to reach the Oder River and relative safety before the Russians reach its banks?
