It is Universal Century 0079, a time when the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon are locked in a bitter war over independence. Having just completed the prototype mobile suits known as Gundam, the space colony Green Noah finds itself under attack from the enemy – inadvertently plunging fifteen-year-old Amuro Ray into the cockpit of a Gundam. Now assigned to the new assault carrier White Base, both Amuro and other Gundam pilots must survive the vicious battles of Zeon as the war rages on. Amuro will soon see the true nature of war; will it consume him, or awaken something from within?
