Brokenhearted and mad with rage, he heads to the battlefront to seek his revenge wreaking havoc on the Imperial German Army.With a ferocious lion at his command, Tarzan’s vengeance is soon complete. But even as he swears off civilization and returns to the Mangani apes of his youth, he finds himself embroiled in the fate of a mysterious woman taken prisoner by a band of deserters.
