A game of chess played in London in 1851 by Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky became known as The Immortal Game. It was thought to illustrate perfectly the style of play at that time. This story relocates that game of chess to the mountains of the English Lake District and transforms it into a bloody battle between two opposing armies. Jenny Wells has managed to get a job as an embedded reporter with General Anderssen's army and gets more than a ring-side seat. She is taken by the reconnaissance expert, Merlin Kite, to the very centre of the battle-ground, high up on Crinkle Crags. They are in the eye of the hurricane and the battle rages around them. The true nature of modern warfare becomes apparent; men - brain, muscle, and blood - can be sacrificed just to gauge the enemy's intentions as each General tries to gain and hold the important ground.
