In early 1918, the Allies had their backs to the wall as a great German offensive sweeps westward in a final bid to win WWI. Faced with impending defeat, French Marshal Ferdinand Foch and British Field Marshal Douglas Haig need the fresh perspectives provided by Canadian General Arthur Currie and Australian General John Monash. Working together, the Allies revitalize their attacks with revolutionary tactics, indomitable bravery and endless determination. Our heroes rose above past disasters, overcame their own personal demons and learned to collaborate in order to triumph.
