YOU are John Canaan, an American secret agent asked to serve the British government during World War II. Your assignment: keep ULTRA (the best-kept secret of WWII) from falling into the wrong hands. It is known only to a few higher-ups in the Allied command, and when a briefing on ULTRA is stolen by Germany's top agent, you are sent to retrieve it. The Germans will have a hard time cracking the coded brief, but if they do, the Allied invasion of Normandy could be mass suicide!
To succeed in your mission, you'll have to make snap decisions under pressure and use the abilities you've acquired after years in the service--firing a gun with deadly accuracy, overpowering an opponent in hand-to-hand combat, and sneaking into and out of areas with uncanny agility. The challenge is yours because the situation is ULTRA deadly.
