“Special emergency report from the Atlanta, Georgia, area. The 25th air concentration depot was completely destroyed fifteen minutes ago… All communication cut off… No details available….” Dusty Ayres heard this report grimly. He knew it meant that Fire-Eyes had caught America unprepared, had struck where he was least expected. How could we parry this new blow? How could our nation, tricked and worn out with war, outwit the Blacks in their most gigantic attempt to conquer the western world?
Black Invaders establish secret base in the Rocky Mountains!… American H.Q. heard this news in surprise—and dread. Despite our vigilance, the enemy had penetrated our Border, were hidden in our very midst. What was their plan? How would they strike? The nation’s safety depended on learning these answers in time—and Dusty Ayres and his buddies took the job, pitting their wings against the war’s newest death weapon—the Blue Cyclone!
Six men-o’-war sunk by Black submarines… Newport News Naval Base destroyed in broad daylight by invisible bomber… Dusty studied this report grimly. Had the enemy developed a new weapon—a ship that could fight under water and in the air as well? Grimly he determined to find out—in Black dynamite skies!
“Captain Dusty Ayres must be killed at all costs… Kill him on sight… All Black agents report immediately to headquarters…” Agent 10 stared as he listened to this enemy radio message. The first part was not surprising, but the second could only mean that the Blacks were preparing to launch a new offensive—the move which America had been expecting for a long while. But where? How? When would it strike? It was imperative to answer these questions before it was too late—and grimly Dusty and his battle eagles take up the trail, follow it across the Atlantic into enemy skies!
“To Captain Ayres: The greatest among us has died by your hand. We, the living, are pledged to avenge that loss. Within forty-eight hours you and your comrades will be wiped from the face of the earth. Nothing can save you!” This message, signed Ekar, was dropped on Dusty’s drome; at the same time another Yank air field nearby was wiped out by a new horror weapon—a flaming rain that destroyed everything it touched! How can America fight this new menace? How can she keep the Blacks from crossing her borders?
“You will instruct Captain Ayres to proceed to Washington H.Q. by staff train at 2:25. He is to be provided with escort to station and placed in custody of Staff Sergeant Bolton…” Dusty read this radiogram with amazement. First H.Q. grounded him, then sent this crazy order. But the order did not worry the gods of war, for they knew that the very fires of hell itself would sweep across war-torn America before the devilish plot behind that command could be smashed—before Dusty Ayres could learn the secret of the white death!
“Stand by for action—three o’clock—map position M-24.” Dusty Ayres suspected that this message came from the enemy, that it was bait luring him to a trap; but he didn’t guess how deadly the snare was, didn’t know that he was keeping a rendezvous with one of the most destructive weapons yet used by the Blacks—an invisible tornado of red death!
When Dusty heard about America’s new invention, the X-Rayoscope, by which the human eye could penetrate night, fog and clouds for a distance of two hundred miles, he thought victory was at hand. With such a machine to spy on the enemy, the war would soon be over. But he didn’t know about the doom even then speeding through invisible skies, had not yet heard of the green thunderbolt!
One minute those Yank ships were zooming up toward that crimson plane. The next, they were tumbling earthward, shattered wrecks—their pilots dead! What was the strange green ray that had destroyed them? Death stalks America as Dusty Ayres sets out to hunt the most gigantic weapon of doom ever launched against the world!
Thick, deadly, that curtain of purple gas stretched along our border from Maine to the Great Lakes. What did it hide? What gigantic war scheme was the enemy preparing behind it? The Fate of America depended upon knowing these answers in time—and grimly Ayres vowed to find out, flying a one-man patrol against the greatest military coup ever planned!
“The President’s son will be returned if you send us Captain Ayres in exchange.” From the enemy camp came this message. And as Dusty answered, he knew he was starting on the greatest mission of the war, was going to play a lone hand against the Black Invaders, who sought to crush America beneath their barbarous wings!
“America, you are next!” As those words rang through the War Department room, officers gasped in horror. Fire-Eyes, emperor of the world, had invaded their secret council to hurl his challenge. And America knew only one answer—“War Declared!”
