The Train: Escape to Normandy

The Train: A daring and deadly escape behind enemy lines!

August 1944. The German stranglehold on Europe is slipping. The liberation of occupied France looms on the horizon. In an effort to escape the advancing Allied forces, the Germans begin a desperate evacuation of men, machinery, and the spoils of war.

On the outskirts of Metz, a heavily armed train of the Third Reich sits sweltering in the dead of night. Onboard lies a secret cargo. Renoirs, Monets, Picassos – the entire plundered art collection of France – are to be smuggled to Berlin under a cover of darkness. Once in Hitler's clutches, these priceless masterpieces could be lost to mankind forever.

Only you can stop it!

Shovel coal or shovel your own grave.
