Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Beginning in 1932, Battle Birds brought readers a thrilling main story, referred to as a “novel”, that featured a rotating cast of main characters like The Three Mosquitoes and Smoke Wade. After nineteen issues, just over a year and a half after its debut, the magazine began to feature the air adventures of Dusty Ayres, and the magazine became officially titled Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds. This lasted until the summer of 1935 when the magazine folded after thirty-one issues. But Battle Birds wasn't finished; it would return.
In early 1940, Battle Birds reappeared on the newsstands. But now the focus of the stories was on the conflict that would soon be known as World War II. This resurrected Battle Birds lasted for 26 issues until May 1944. And now Battle Birds is back, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

A V-Aces Novel
Wings of the Ghost Patrol
By Ralph Oppenheim
Over a land red with war came the deadliest weapon an Allied army had ever dared to fight against — invisible wings, that killed their prey and disappeared without warning! Captain V flies alone against the greatest foe of all time — the Squadron of the Ghost Patrol!
Squadron of Lost Men — Gripping Sky Novelette
by Orlando Rigoni
We are the Squadron of the Damned. We fly in close formation, straight into Death’s face, for we are already on his list of those who cannot live. So beware, Boches — when you hear the sound of our massed wings — you are listening to your dirge.
Bring ’Em Down — Dead! — Air-War Story
by Ray P. Shotwell
“I’ll do my share of fighting, sir. But I didn’t come to France to kill men who couldn’t fight back. That’s not war. That’s murder. I’ll fight against even odds — or I won’t fight at all!”
Jive Bomber — War-Action Story
by David Goodis
The only thing with wings he was afraid of was the trickiest little pilot of them all — a guy named Dan Cupid, who broke all the rules of war!
