The Amazon listing describes

THE EUROPEAN REBELLION! Collecting Episodes 1 and 2 of the acclaimed OVA SPin-Off to the hugely popular anime series, Code Geass: Lelouch Of The Rebellion 

The side story takes place in 2017 a.t.b., around the time Lelouch took on the alter-ego Zero and built up his Black Knights rebellion army. The setting is in Europe, where the Euro Universe (E.U.) allied nations are being invaded by the overwhelming forces of the Holy Britannian Empire. On the verge of defeat, the E.U. army forms a special division known as W-O , of which a young pilot named Akito Hyuuga is a member. Layla Malkal, a former Britannian Aristocrat comes to the E.U.'s aid, commanding the Wyvern Knightmare corps comprised of Japanese teenagers. They recklessly plunge into a battlefield, where the survival rate is extremely low, at about 5% only. They fight for their freedom, and for a "home" to which they can return.
