Special Ops Captain Stuart Mackenzie is good at what he does and what he does is kill. But he no longer sees the medals on his chest, only the blood on his hands. Believing he's no better than the murderous Nazis he kills, Stuart nonetheless is convinced the fate of the world rests on his undeserving shoulders. The Nazis can never be defeated as long as they control the supernatural power of the spear plunged into Christ at the crucifixion.
Someone needs to wrest control of it from Hitler's evil hand.
Scoffed at by his skeptical superiors, Stuart perverts his assigned mission into a personal quest for the spear. But along the way, will he find absolution?
He recruits a crew of misfits including a naive college professor, a Negro cook, a drunken coward and two thieves. With obsolete cast-off weapons and equipment, they set out into the middle of the fiercest fighting of the Battle of the Bulge.
Can mundane weapons defeat supernatural powers from the pit of Hell? Or does any hope of an Allied victory rest on Stuart and his quest for the Unholy Grail?
