After playing cat and mouse with a 10,000-strong Iraqi Armored Division to gain crucial intelligence, the Scouts of Marine 2nd Tank Division think they are on their way home, but their war isn't over.

August 1990, 30,000 Iraqi troops have invaded Kuwait and are in a position to influence nearly half of the world’s oil supply. The United Nations condemn the aggression but it is clear that only military intervention is going to displace Saddam Hussein. Captain Joseph ‘Quarry’ Samuels and the Marines of Scout Platoon, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Division are tasked with discovering the strength and deployment of Iraqi troops. Quarry and his scouts are soon engaged in a game of cat and mouse with the 10,000-strong 108th Iraqi Armored Division. Operating behind enemy lines, they put themselves squarely in danger's way in order to collect the intelligence necessary to launch military operations. When hostilities end, with the greatest one-sided military victory of all time, the Marines deserve to be on their way home. However, Quarry remains in Kuwait to continue the deadly game with an old nemesis, but this time with a new ally on his side.
