This is the third issue in the Dusty Ayres series. These are science-fiction stories of a near-future war that has ravaged America. The Black Invaders, led by an Asian warlord known as "Fire-Eyes", are bent upon world domination, have conquered all of Europe and are now on the American continent. Captain Dusty Ayres, ace pilot for the U.S. Air Defense flies in the Silver Flash, an advanced craft of his own design. With his two pals Curly Brooks and Biff Bolton, they battle some of the most diabolical mad scientists and their weirdest inventions. These amazing stories took over the Battle Birds magazine from June 1934 through the July/August issue of 1935, changing the magazine name to Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds. And now Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds is back, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

by Robert Sidney Bowen
Thousands of soldiers — air units — cannons — guarded our northern border, making a wall through which the Blacks could not, apparently, penetrate.

Could he find out in time to stop this world-destroying horde from completing the greatest military coup ever planned?
