Set in 1941, Czechoslovakia was occupied by Nazi forces, governed by SS General Reinhard Heydrich, nicknamed "The Butcher of Prague." His reign of terror against the Czech resistance led Allied authorities in London to hatch a mission to assassinate him. Two soldiers from Czechoslovakia's army-in-exile were parachuted into their homeland, and set out to hunt down Heydrich.
