The Story of “Across Enemy Lines” You are a young sergeant in the United States Army. You were with your platoon on a dangerous mission to locate a lost supply truck across enemy lines. Your orders were to go into Germany undetected and locate the truck. The only information you had was that the supply truck lost contact somewhere near the German/French border near Strasbourg. You were to fly in and parachute to a designated drop point near Strasbourg. Unfortunately, you missed your drop point by several hundred miles deeper into enemy territory due to a destructive ground to air attack lead by the Austro-Hungarian forces. Your platoon has suffered massive casualties and you are alone. You are now stuck behind enemy lines. Your goal is to get back to your base located in England. You have to apply your WWI knowledge to this task and utilize all the resources available to you. This game will increase your knowledge, test your skills, and be a lot of fun! Home Page
