The saga of the Twilight Patrol continues — equal parts H.P. Lovecraft and G-8 and His Battle Aces.
The dead reappear all over Europe. Men survive fatal wounds. Judgement Day seem to have arrived, but no supernatural or spiritual forces are at work. The world is being subjugated by an entirely rational and scientific phenomenon — A perfect pain killer. A cure for most illnesses and injuries.
The Aesculapius Pact zealously believes life should be preserved — at any cost. They heal the wounded and drive away their pain, so they may take up arms again and be wounded again, so they may heal again. All should live so that all may fight. Eventually, The Pact’s dominance of medicine and drugs will allow them to control both sides while the Great War goes on forever!
To the world at large, The Twilight Patrol is a high-flying band of scrappy patriots, ever alert for trouble and always willing to lend a hand. To the sinister foes lurking behind the Axis horizon, they are a force to be reckoned with in the onslaught against freedom. To their fans, The Twilight Patrol is the bravest assortment of adventurers ever brought together to confront the dark forces threatening the mortal realm.
