And one last book for 2016. This first adventure of Dusty Ayres and his Battle Birds, published as High Adventure #44, pits him against the invasion force headed by the Black Hawk. Dusty has to race around the country due to troubles with communications systems, discovering the invasion coming from an unexpected place in Canada. He daringly fights the forces, though Duluth is largely destroyed. Oh well. Some prescient elements regarding the coming World War, but still some unbelievable pulp bits and villains. I prefer Bowen’s straight air war stories.
