Operator #5 October 1936

America, last citadel of freedom and democracy in the world, has made a valiant but futile stand against the ravening war hordes of the cruel conqueror, Rudolph I, the man whose super fighting machine is ruthlessly putting the nations of civilized men in thrall. Daily mass executions of men and women — even children — on the Eastern seaboard, are but one of the diabolical means of bringing the surviving patriots to heel.

But there is one band who will never yield, who grimly say: “Death before dishonor!” Their leader, Jimmy Christopher, known to them as Operator 5, realizes that only one bold, desperate move can furnish his fellow American s with the thundering fleet of air destroyers with which alone they can hope to save their country. Grimly, quickly, silently, he sets his plan into action!
