Peggy Carter. She’s enigmatic and beautiful, a woman with a mission. She’s a pistol... with a pistol. She’s all-American, just like Cap. She‘s prepared to sacrifice all, just like Cap. And she’s ready to double cross him if she has to, when she has to. Disguises and despair, guns and glory. It’s a tale of amour and honor in WWII France. She’s Cap’s first love and she’s going to make a lasting impression... even if it kills him!
