It is January 1842 & General Elphinstone has withdrawn from Kabul with his entire command. 16,000 soldiers & civilians face destruction if reinforcements in Jalalabad cannot be quickly reached!
In the Anglo-Afghan War, the mighty British Empire has won every battle, but is in danger of losing the war. After a series of attacks and uprisings the British forces in the capital of Kabul have made a “tactical withdrawal” east, towards the better defended city of Jalalabad. British forces, drawn out in long columns in mountain gorges, have been relentlessly attacked by Afghan forces and the main body of the Grand Army of the Indus is held up in snowy mountain passes. The only hope against annihilation lies with an agile and lightly-armed squad of British and Indian troops, handpicked for their skill and resourcefulness. This small band must make its way through mountainous enemy territory, battling Ghizye Tribesmen and bitterly cold winter weather to reach help in Jalalabad before it’s too late. Do you have what it takes to risk your life for Queen and Country?
