Storyline[edit | edit source]

Albert Einstein, having invented time travel, goes back in time to erase Hitler from the course of history to save the world from World War II, inadvertently creating an alternate timeline where the Soviets fill the power vacuum. Now only the collected Allied forces, with the help of Special Agent Tanya, can stop the Soviet onslaught.
