The Yellow Scourge

by Curtis Steele and Frederick C. Davis

One moment good-will bound the United States and the great Power across the sea... the next, shells screamed their death wails into Coast homes and factories. No citizen was safe from the bloody holocaust when the Yellow Empire struck without warning from the Pacific. With fiendish artifice the world was turned against us. And somewhere in this country, covertly completing the terrifying work of wholesale destruction, lurked the ruthless agent of the invading hordes. Operator 5 alone guessed the dread secret and matched his individual might against a million war-drunk terrorists-while the nation trembled on the brink of red wreckage.

Originally published in the June, 1934 issue of Operator 5 Magazine.

In a naval escapade spanning coastal California to the Panama Canal, Operator 5 tackles a most cunning adversary--Chief secret agent of the Yellow Empire, Kara Vizna, the most dangerous, and most beautiful, secret agent alive.

The Asian Pacific Empire has demanded the surrender of the U.S. Pacific Fleets. Strike first and declare war afterward is their devilish strategy--counterfeiting American vessels to make it seem that the U.S. has instigated the attacks. Only Jimmy Christopher, known in the Intelligence department as Operator 5, has the wherewithal to defeat this devious reign of terror.
