“OPENING SALVO”
The insidious Kobra, a twisted doomsday cult dedicated to bringing about Kali Yuga, the age of chaos that sweeps away the imperfect world, has coiled itself around the leadership of both Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. Only a top-secret Allied special operations taskforce commissioned by President Roosevelt can stop them, and there’s only one man who can lead this “G.I. Combat”: the hard-as-nails platoon sergeant of the indomitable Easy Company, Franklin Rock! Under Sgt. Rock’s command is a collection of soldiers unlike any the War has seen: the never-say-die French Resistance fighter, Mademoiselle Marie; the nameless but peerless U.S. grunt, the Unknown Soldier; the Ninja who defected after realizing Tojo’s folly, Kyodai Ken; the machine that fights like a man, G.I. Robot; the M3 Stuart possessed by the spirit of the 19th-century Confederate general J.E.B. Stuart, the Haunted Tank; and the Army K-9 Corpsman enhanced by the super-soldier serum, Rex the Wonder Dog! When the eclectic combat unit’s first mission brings them against Kobra’s immortal sorceress Circe on the occupied Greek isle of Crete, the first shots of the Weird War are fired…

“ACES HIGH”
The skies of WWII are dominated by one man… and he’s not on our side! Hans von Hammer, the Enemy Ace, is unbeatable in a dogfight. For this reason, Kobra, the insidious doomsday cult that coiled itself around the Axis’ leadership, seeks to recruit him to their twisted cause. Well, Sgt. Rock has orders not to let that happen! It’s up to Rock to lead Mademoiselle Marie, the Unknown Soldier, the Ninja Kyodai Ken, G.I. Robot, and the Haunted Tank in storming the Luftwaffe command and control center in Tunisia! Their mission: capture the Enemy Ace stationed within before it’s too late! But the Deutsches Afrikakorps aren’t their only opposition. They’ll also battle the clock in an effort to complete their task and scoot before von Hammer’s would be recruiters arrive – a vicious contingent of Kobra lead by the merciless operative, Red Claw! But while the non-K-9 soldiers wage the Weird War, Rex the Wonder Dog thinks there might be a different path to the Enemy Ace… a path that runs straight through von Hammer’s only friend - his adopted puppy Schatzi! Meine Güte!

“THE HAUNTED WUNDERWAFFE”
In life, Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart was a hard man with many faults. He sacrificed everything because he believed Abraham Lincoln was a tyrant, but in the afterlife Stuart could not rest when he saw true tyranny rising in Europe and Japan. Through spectral possession of a war machine bearing his name, the Light M3 Stuart, the General was able to return to the fight as the Haunted Tank! But when the insidious doomsday cult Kobra draws inspiration from their encounters with J.E.B., Kobra’s sorceress Circe summons forth the spirits of history’s greatest warriors to inhabit the Third Reich’s ludicrously implausible super-heavy armored vehicles! The Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte prototype weighs 1,000 metric tons, has fifteen times the armament of a Panzer, and is possessed by the necromanticly enslaved spirit of the man who burned the South - Stuart’s archnemesis, General William Tecumseh Sherman! Even under the command of Sgt. Rock and with the other G.I. Combatants at his side, can the Haunted Tank possibly hope to defeat the Haunted Wunderwaffe? By gawd, he certainly intends to try!

“DOUBLE DRAGONS”
The Arakan Campaign was the first tentative Allied attack into Burma after the Japanese conquest. Not only were the British and British Indian Army unprepared for offensive actions in the difficult terrain, but they had not anticipated how thoroughly the region had been infiltrated by the twisted doomsday cult Kobra – and more specifically, by Kobra’s vile eastern affiliates, the Black Dragon Society! Their stealthy assassins laid waste to any Allies that advanced towards Rangoon, and only one man could hope to dismantle the Society’s stranglehold on the Asian nation – because he used to be one of them! While his grandson would one day consistently defeat Bruce Wayne in training, the original Kyodai Ken was a feared Ninja for the Black Dragons before turning his back on a nation he felt had lost its honor. Now, with the help of the Unknown Soldier and Mademoiselle Marie, Kyodai must infiltrate the mythical fighting tournament on Akyab Island hosted by the Black Dragon Society. His mission: cut the head off the snake and eliminate the Society’s leader, Dragon King. But can Kyodai possibly kill… his own brother? Or will blood prove thicker than water, leading to the worst betrayal in G.I. Combat history?

“DOG SOLDIERS”
The super soldier serum that turned an unassuming white German Sheppard named Rex into famed U.S. Army K-9 Corpsman Rex the Wonder Dog was thought lost forever. That is, until the Allies are ravaged by a contingent of Nazi super-Rottweilers! Somehow, the twisted doomsday cult Kobra has replicated the serum, and they've breed a squad of überhunds that view our favorite wonder dog as a traitor to his race and species! Can Rex, alongside Sgt. Rock, the Haunted Tank, and the other G.I. Combatants, track down the twisted scientist responsible for creating these vile Axis dog soldiers? And can they trust intelligence garnered from their captive, Hans von Hammer – the Enemy Ace, and his beloved schnauzer, Schatzi? Or is their bark worse than their bite?

“I, G.I. Robot”
Sgt. Rock once told him that they were made by the same things: taxpayer dollars, American spirit, and true grit. But now Sgt. Rock is gone, along with the rest of his fighting unit. The war is over and the Axis Powers, supported by the insidious doomsday cult Kobra, have won. Freedom is systematically eliminated as the human race is brought to the edge of extinction by the eccentricities of mad dictators. The only hope for the future lies in the past, and G.I. Robot is forced to travel back in time to prevent Circe and Red Claw from launching the ambush that resulted in his team's demise. But will the G.I. Combat crew from the present trust the G.I. Robot from the future? Come with him if you want to live!

“BETTER LEFT UNKNOWN”
He's the man that no one knows, but that is known by everyone. He is the Unknown Soldier. Amongst both his allies and his enemies, rumors swirl around the man. Is he truly immortal? Or is he just a commando with a very particular set of skills, horribly scarred on the battlefields of WWII? The Office of Strategic Services has become concerned about this mystery man's important position on Sgt. Rock's fighting unit. Rock told them where they could stick it, but up-and-coming intelligence agent Allan Fitzgerald simply cannot leave the enigma alone. As he digs deeper, peering through reports and even video footage of the man in action, his curiosity becomes an obsession. Who is the Unknown Soldier? He'll find his answer... even if he has to kill for it!
