Captain Philip Strange: Strange Operators

by Donald E. Keyhoe

A boyhood prank comes back to haunt the Brain-Devil when he meets his vaudeville nemesis in the Theater of War. Karl von Zenden, the quick-change Man of a Thousand Faces, is now using his stage tricks as agent Z-13 for the Wilhelmstrasse—and he's not one to drop the curtain on a grudge. Now backstage rivals are front-line enemies in an exclusive engagement of "Spy vs. Spy." When Strange gets into the act and uses his own makeup-mastery, the Great War becomes the Greatest Show on Earth.


Roaring out of the 1930’s comes the greatest heroes to ever fly WWI Europe’s unfriendly skies!

Straight from the tattered pages of Popular Publication’s air war pulps, Age of Aces Books is proud to be able to bring you the best of these heroes. Don’t spend all that time and money tracking down dozens of the crumbling original magazines looking for your favorite aviator. Age of Aces has done that for you. Each of our books contain stories featuring a single exciting character or written by one of your favorite authors. We are also doing some books that are not air war but still have a connection to that era and those magazines. All Age of Aces books are 6 X 9 trade paperback editions, and are available from Amazon.com.

The C.O. of the 7th Marines Squadron was not new at the fighting game. He’d taken lessons from blood-crazed Moros in the Philippines, from slant-eyed Boxers in China. And he’d learned one thing—you’ve got to hit what you shoot at, whether you’re on the ground or in the air. And because he’d learned that lesson so well—he was faced with a court-martial!
