A group of bitter men - a secret League of War - was ready to plunge the world into a new, Earth-wide conflict. They issued orders, and bloody organized murder was loosed in the heart of Europe! And behind this carnage, a single man was scheming to make himself the dictator of the world! Never before had a single person conceived such a colossal plan for profiting from the slaughter of humans. He had overcome all obstacles - except one lone avenger, Operator #5, America's Secret Service ace. Can Jimmy Christopher keep the nations of the world from hurling themselves into a war that can bring nothing but universal defeat, misery, and slavery?
From out of the pages of Operator #5 magazine steps a dramatic hero who pits himself against threats to national security from all origins. Whether it's a subversive internal threat or a full-scale invasion from an enemy land, James Christopher stands ready and resolute to defeat it.
James Christopher does not technically belong to the US Secret Service. He is a top agent for America's unnamed Intelligence Service. It is in his blood. His father, John Christopher, retired from the same agency years before. Answerable only to his superior, Z-7, and carrying a letter from the president of the United States identifying him as Operator #5, Jimmy Christopher plays for keeps. He carries a rapier sewn into his belt, and in a golden skull hanging from his watch-chain is a reservoir of poison to be taken in the event of capture.
Into this unprecedented crisis plunges Jimmy Christopher. Only one man, but a man who embodies the American spirit - and stands prepared to perish to protect his country.
The League of War Monsters is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the February 1935 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
