James Christopher, Operator #5 Audiobook
#42 The Dawn That Shook the World
by Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby
Over the entire civilized world had broken the terrible, false dawn of anarchy and revolution that threatened to consume America in its fury! But Operator #5 and his volunteer aides saw one desperate chance to avert disaster. Overseas sailed this valiant little band, on them resting the final hope of civilization. And there, in his lair, they found and fought, blow upon blow, the devil dictator who had sworn to weld the whole world into an evil empire and make an end, for all time, of freedom, justice and liberty!
Originally written by master pulpsmith Frederick C. Davis, Operator #5 was a clear forerunner of the spy genre, which exploded in the 1960s when President John F. Kennedy happened to remark that he enjoyed reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels. The first Bond film, Dr. No, was released in 1962. Soon, America was surrounded by spies. The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Our Man Flint, and Nick Carter, Killmaster were just a few of the most prolific. Jimmy Christopher was on the job a generation before them all, blazing the espionage trail, and keeping America safe from fascism and other wicked isms.
They called James Christopher Operator #5—undercover agent, man of many identities, patriotic protector of America’s sacred shores. Working for the U. S. Intelligence Service, his job is to root out subversive elements and stand as the first line of defense against foreign invasions from all quarters. Jimmy Christopher was indeed the James Bond of the 1930s!
It was a horrible, false dawning breaking over the world — heralding the most powerful and ruthless autocracy known to man. America, like England and France, was under the heel of a dictator who had set out to make himself emperor of the earth! Operator #5 and his volunteer aides crossed the sea to Europe — waging a fierce, relentless undercover war!
The Dawn That Shook The World is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the November-December 1938 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
