In the northern reaches of the mighty Sahara a group of ragtag soldiers meets in the officer's mess of a British base. Italian forces aren't far away, but these group of Chinese, Irish, Australian, Russian and Finnish soldiers isn't made for trench fighting, they are special...
Led by Major Cornelius von Gilding, former member of the Waffen-SS and now leader of a very special special unit, torturer Ivan Li, drunkard Gregori, sniper Oskar Hietamäki, rigger Phillip Hargreaves and priest Liam McGregor try to save the world by stopping the NS forces trying to accomplish Operation Ewigkeit.
After hearing about a strange ankh that - according to legend - has the power to revive fallen soldiers, von Gilding decides it's time to stop the Nazis and attack their excavation site in the Nile Delta. The first onslaught works perfectly and the Germans are soon dead. The rest of them flees into the temple, but Gregori is already on their heels.
