James Christopher, Operator #5 Audiobook
#48 The Army from Underground
by Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby
America’s greatest cities had been destroyed, her armies annihilated, by the new and awful weapons of the Yellow Vulture... Could Operator #5 rally the terrified citizens from their poor refuge in hill and wasteland, for one last bid for glory — or gallant death?
The saga of Jimmy Christopher, otherwise, Operator #5 of the United States Intelligence Service had been a busy routine of defeating enemies, both foreign and domestic, each and every month since 1934. It wasn’t easy, but the Intelligence ace made it look like it was all in a month’s work. Even when the format of the stories shifted from one and dones every month to the epic serialized novel, The Purple Invasion, Operator #5 continued to deliver on action and adventure with every word.
Operator #5 magazine ran clear to the Fall of 1939. Jimmy Christopher was in the middle of beating off yet another ongoing invasion by a renamed Japanese Empire when World War II broke out in Europe. How long this sequence would have lasted will never be known. Five novels in, World War II broke out in Europe, making the prospect of an invasion of America seem too close to the headlines to be comfortable. Operator #5 magazine was quietly folded with the fate of America left hanging in the balance.
With the fires of war threatening to engulf the world in reality, Popular Publications decided that the struggles of Jimmy Christopher no longer represented escapist fiction, and quickly folded the title with its November 1939 issue. Soon enough, its loyal readers would be involved in the spreading struggle of total war….
The Asiatic air squadrons had rained their terrible atomic-bombs upon America’s greatest cities, and hunted patriots hid in the hills and wastelands — until Operator #5 whipped a shattered nation into one mighty cavalcade that was to march for liberty or death!
The Army From Underground is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the November-December 1939 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
