Berlin, April 1949– Although the Second World War found its bloody end just a few short years ago the spectre of a deadly new conflict between the East and West block countries looms on the horizon. The Soviet Block is in revolt against the Western Allies’ claims to power in Europe and relies thereby primarily upon their newfound military strength. One small spark is all it would take to launch the terrible war machines of two of the most powerful armies in the world!
