All Jack Logan wanted was a normal life but fate had different plans. At the end of World War II, Jack's father returned home in a pine box while his eldest brother returned unharmed. After years of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of several stepfathers, he ends up joining the new elite Army Special Forces. Based in Bad Tölz, West Germany, his Operational Detachment-Alpha team gets their first big mission. Just across the Iron Curtain, a Soviet commander is amassing troops for a potential invasion of Western Europe. Trained for such an event, the A-Team is dispatched to thwart the commander. While Logan and his comrades are on the operation, he uncovers information that will change his past, present, and, perhaps, his future.
