Summary
After his wife dies during the Blitz a soldier is intent on dying in battle, until a plane crash forces him to save his crew and he regains his will to live; the U.S. Army King Company launches a high-casualty offensive to capture the crucial hilltop in the Korean War; when the entire Northern hemisphere is destroyed in an atomic war, the residents of Melbourne, Australia, realize that it is only time keeping them safe before a cloud of radioactive materials reaches their part of the world too
