Tanya Degurechaff is a young and infamous female soldier known for her predatory cruelty and incredible tactical skills, nicknamed "The Demon of the Rhine". Under her sweet figure, however, hides the soul of a man who challenged Being X, the self-proclaimed God, to a battle of the mind, which led to her reincarnation as a little girl in a magical world of war.

Full of anger, Tanya decides to rise through the armed ranks of her country's navy as the world war rages on. Only Being X turns out to be the strongest obstacle between her and a peaceful life. But his astute actions and initiative to fight have a side effect: they propel the Empire to become the most powerful nation known to man.
