"Joe and I are taking a holiday and that's the end of it."

Joe 90 is given the brain pattern of an Army Colonel
and carries out a vital and hazardous military operation.

*   *   *

Professor McClaine and Joe 90 are planning a holiday and therefore reject Sam Loover's appeal for help on a new assignment. Apparently accepting defeat, he suggests that Borova would be an ideal spot for a vacation. They go there, only to find that Sam has tricked them: this is just where he wants them for the assignment he has in mind!

The new government in Borova has ordered the World Army to evacuate the Beneleta base, and the World Army has pulled out on the understanding that the base would be dismantled. But WIN agents have reported that the new government have not done any dismantling and are using the base for their own ends. For the sake of world peace, the base must be destroyed.

But the only man with the right experience and intimate knowledge of the base's advanced warning system is Colonel Henderson, and he has been injured. Joe is therefore given his brain pattern, and embarks on a hazardous military operation to destroy the base.

The attack begins at dawn .......
