A tidal wave of terror sweeps southern Asia after the Japanese
capture Hong Kong and Singapore. Over a one hundred thousand
American, British, Canadian, and Indian prisoners of war are put to
work building a Japanese railroad in some of the toughest jungle
terrain in Asia; tens of thousands die of malnutrition, starvation,
malaria, and Japanese mistreatment. Thousands of allied military
and civilian prisoners are killed by illegal biological and
chemical experiments conducted by a secret Japanese Army research
program. The Japanese appear to be unstoppable. When the US Army
Chief of Staff implements Operation King Cobra and sends the highly
trained and swarthy special missions agent Jonathan Preston into
Asia, things begin to turnaround. After Preston teams up with two
British Special Operations Executive agents, Miles Murphy and Henri
Morreau, the trio wreaks havoc on Japanese supply lines, foils
sabotage, and assassination attempts by Japanese agents, frees
allied prisoners of war, and begins shutting down the secret
biological and chemical warfare programs of the Japanese Army's
Unit 731. After nearly a year of solid success, a Japanese hit team
is now after the Cobra trio. When the two teams collide there is
only one outcome: death. Operation King Cobra is based on the true
story of an American clandestine agent from Ohio.
