Acclaimed writer Chuck Dixon (NIGHTWING, ROBIN) revisits the Team he helped create and enlists super-star artists Doug Mahnke (BATMAN, JLA) & Sandra Hope (INFINITE CRISIS covers, DANGER GIRL) for a 6-issue tale of heroism and bloodshed. The year is 1945. In the twilight of World War II, a clash of ideologies leads to a colder, more sinister conflict. And the first battle of this new World War will be fought on the eastern frontier of Germany by a band of seven American commandos. Codename Deathblow has been assigned a mission of dire importance to the future of American national security: reach German test labs in Peenemunde, Germany before the Soviets can, and evacuate all personnel. Step one: gather the Team! In the epic tradition of the original Team Seven and such films as The Dirty Dozen and Saving Private Ryan comes a blood-and-guts tale set in the waning days of World War II.
