The year is 1939 and a twisted alliance between a hate-crazed dictator and a ruthless general has left Europe in flames, in chains. The world's only hope against the threat--the creation of an elite counterstrike force. Code name: G.I. JOE. But are even the Joes tough enough to take down this evil empire when it enlists the aid of a merciless army of alien war machines known as the DECEPTICONS? The series also features all-new World War II era character designs for both the Joes and TRANSFORMERS by designers Dan Norton & Don Figueroa.
