War between the Earth Federation and Zeon has ground to a bloody standstill, and both sides eagerly seek a quick resolution. Among these is Ensign Shiro Amada, a young mobile suit pilot for the Federation assigned to the 08th mobile suit division in the heart of the Vietnamese jungle. The members of his team include Karen, a hot-headed pilot and part time mechanic; Sanders "The Reaper," a pilot with a reputation for getting the people in his unit killed; Eledor, an aspiring musician, flirt, and communications officer for the team; and Mikel, the love-struck driver for the team's command vehicle. As the gravity of war bears down on their shoulders, they must struggle to keep their sanity amidst a chaotic battlefield that continually tests their wit, focus, and resolve.
