by Gary Towner

An Army Colonel, under orders to vacate an underground Bio-Chem research bunker at the close of World War II, illegally buries toxic waste in an isolated Keyly, Kansas farmer’s field.

The Governor asks the U.S. Army for help warding off the vicious attackers. But when the troops arrive, they are under orders to exterminate more than just insects.
