Synopsis: Spring 1944: Allied commanders in Italy prepare for the fourth assault on Monte Cassino and the dreaded German Gustav Line. They have no choice but the throw the untested 339th Infantry Regiment, comprised almost entirely of draftees, into the fray. Will they fight? Can these inexperienced troops prevail against heavily entrenched battle harder Germans? The answer comes in dramatic fashion a Private Aaron Johnson and the other men of G Company run headlong into the blistering fire of Germany's waiting storm troopers.
On the home front, Aaron's wife, Maggie, tends to their infant son and recently widowed father and prays constantly for her husband's safe return. Little does she know that she might provide the means for Aaron's survival in his deadliest and bloodiest encounter of the war.
