Synopsis for "Team Zero, Part Five"
Team Zero denies Soviet forces from gaining access across the river to Karlshagen by exploding the bridges. Deathblow plans out in having Backlash's minefields and warning signs to restrict Russian forces on the river side to narrowing their options from the east. Claymore, Bullet and some of the German recruits are to plant tank traps on the north-south road leading to the village, given that there are deep woods and marshes on opposite side of the road. Combining those tactics would delay the Soviets and allowing Grifter, who is driving the truck carrying the scientists, the materials, and civilians to escape to the Allies.
Bullet, Claymore and the recruits manage to destroy the advancing Soviet armor on the road. However, one of the Soviets throws a grenade which mortally wounds Claymore who is then gun down. Bullet, in an act of desperation, then kills the recruits and surrender himself to the Russians.
Near the frozen river, Backlash, Cowboy, and Deadeye defend against the Russians. One of the recruits, Ernst who is befriended by Backlash, runs out on the river with a landmine and is kill by the gunfire before throwing the mine across the river which it explodes, thus breaking up the river and delaying the Russians.
Meanwhile, Grifter learns more about Inge who came to Karlshagen with her sister to take care of their grandfather after their parents were killed in the Ally bombing in Heidelberg. They are then stop by a German checkpoint.
Back at Karlshagen, some of the German recruits that came with Bullet and Claymore, retreat to where Deathblow is. They inform him of the situation at the north-south road. After hearing this, Deathblow hopes that Bullet will make it back.
Bullet willingly reveals to his captors about the village's defenses. Which he heartlessly declares that his betrayal is "anything for the war effort."
