The most deadly weapon in history — a green mist which turned all it touched to flaming ruin — was ravaging America! Far off in Etoria, war-dog kingdom of the Mediterranean, a power-mad demagogue plotted the conquest of the world, and subjugating our land was his first wily move...!

War Dogs of the Green Destroyer is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the January, 1936 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
