The new dark age. It is the year 1949. Across the continent of Europe, a new dark age has come. From Britain to the Russian steppes, the swastika reigns supreme. The extermination camps stain the skies with ash, while in the schools the children learn the litanies of a new world order. It is the new dark age. It is the age of Neue Europa. The remnants of the Free World have gathered. European exiles, Free Russian and Commonwealth stand beside the USA as America strives to turn the tide. Democracy against fascism. Light against dark. Mankind's last, most desperate crusade. The year is 1949 - And World War Three has finally begun.
