Description

First Born tells the story of Frank Arket, an average guy who becomes an American hero as he struggles to escape from the steel mills of Pennsylvania and embarks upon a career in the U.S. Army and military intelligence. Born to a pair of star-crossed teenage lovers, Frank struggles to survive a childhood marred by the tragic deaths of both his parents. He desperately wants to escape from the grind and filth of his hometown, marry the girl of his dreams, and live happily ever after. However, a family curse declares all first born Arket children will suffer horrible fates. Frank is drafted into the Army shortly before America enters World War II. He travels to Europe with the Army's 63rd Division and later becomes involved in military intelligence. During the day, he protects presidents and powerful Army secrets. At night, he returns home to his family and "normal life," the curse ever present in his mind.
