FACT: Condition Green: Tokyo was the warning posted almost daily at the gates of U.S. bases in Japan during May, 1960, when the US-Japan Security Treaty was revised and extended. Communist-led riots and demonstrations opposed to the treaty made it unsafe for Americans on the streets of Tokyo. Homes were burned, autos overturned, government offices ransacked. Americans were attacked, a leading politician assassinated, hundreds injured, and many killed. The revised treaty passed the Diet, but Leftist discontent forded the Prime Minister to resign.

FICTION: U.S. Intelligence learns that Japanese Communists plan to seize control of the government on May Day 1970, but due to a rising tide of anti-American feelings and bloody anti-government rioting, is powerless to act. Only by dramatic and positive proof of a Red betrayal could the U.S. hope to turn the tide of popular sentiment against the Communists. Capt. Joe Holiday is sent on an 11th-hour reconnaissance flight over Communist China and Russia in hope of obtaining such proof?and obtain it he does. But to get the evidence into the proper hands, he must evade a swarm of Soviet fighters with his unarmed aircraft, and run a last deadly gauntlet of Soviet Surface-to-Air Missile sites.
