The year is 2006 and Argentina has launched a military takeover of the Antarctic peninsula, seeking to dominate the last untapped resource pool on the planet. While the nations of the world are taken by surprise, the only military unit in position to react is the USS Cunningham, an experimental stealth guided missile destroyer on its first overseas deployment. And as the diplomatic furore reaches its inevitable stalemate, it is left to Commander Amanda Lee Garrett, in charge of the Cunningham, to take on the combined forces of the Argentine navy and air force in the freezing, fog-shrouded waters off the Antarctic circle while the fate of the seventh continent hangs in the balance.
