When Navy Commander Marc Bradford leads his air squadron to Antarctica on what he thinks is routine support of our scientific stations there, little does he imagine that he is about to stumble into an amazing plot to revive the Third Reich. Weary of supporting a remnant of Hitler's regime, the Argentines have decided to exile the war criminals to a base in the Antarctic peninsula. The unrepentent Nazis agree to this scheme because they are developing a biological wonder weapon that kills everyone who isn't vaccinated against it, and they see antipodal privacy as useful cover. They have arranged with an Arab terrorist group to demonstrate the weapon against the Israelis, in exchange for money and the United Arab Republic's formal recognition of a reconstituted Third Reich. The action picks up and there's a rousing battle scene at the conclusion.
