Inside Front Cover
"Cobra is in command, and the world is one minute closer to midnight. To fight back, G.I. Joe is recruiting civilians and training them as spies, assassins, and saboteurs. But these are dark times for G.I. Joe. Duke, their beloved head trainer, is dead, shot down in the street by Major Bludd. Tiger, their most recent recruit, is a brash and unpolished addition to the team, who destroyed a mission and alienated himself from his fellow Joes. Roadblock, a field team member, just killed a man for the first time, and is still reeling from it. And General Hawk, their leader, has delivered terrible news: The United States has surrendered to Cobra, leaving G.I. Joe with no support and an uncertain future."
"With Cobra ascendent across the globe, the G.I. Joe program takes on new recruits to fight back. Are the recruits, everyday people determined to fight for their country, ready for the realities of war? Or will Cobra root out and destroy the initiative before it has a chance to launch?"
