At the end of World War II, Axel Mader and Jorn Furman -- two young officers who wear Germany's highest class of Iron Cross -- barely escape the retribution of the SS. Decades later, their fates are entangled with that of Jake Tallon, an American soldier stationed in Berlin who falls in love with Mader's daughter. Tallon, too, is a decorated war hero, though from Vietnam, not WWII. Together, the three iron men join together in Berlin just before the fall of the Wall to confront the legacy of the past . . . and defeat it.
