Years of famine and neglect have brought devastation to the North Korean population. Faced with an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, the North Korean government is pressured to open up to outside assistance, and to curb military spending.

 

The North Korean military reacts violently to this new policy, seeing their power peddled away by bureaucrats. They unite behind the charismatic General Jung, who announces that the "traitors and capitalists" have no right to barter away "the birthright of the North Korean people." Jung’s forces quickly wipe out other splinter factions of the military and mobilize North Korea’s vast army of reserves. Before long, Jung is the supreme authority in North Korea.

 

The North Korean government, now a mouthpiece for Jung, tries to disguise the facts, but satellite reconnaissance photos show the truth. As Jung consolidates his power, the situation grows ever more unstable.

 

Faced with the spectre of what Jung might do with North Korea's nuclear arsenal, and fearful that this rogue military leader will embroil his neighbors in a larger conflict, the regional powers demand that something be done.

 

While they remain carefully neutral, other nations - the US, France, Britain, Germany and more - send an expeditionary force. Its mission is simple: to devastate General Jung's war machine before his ambition embroils the entire region - and maybe the world - in a nuclear war.
