Thrill to the adventures of Anthony Buck Rodgers is one of the most celebrated characters in the history of science fiction. Famed in comic strips, television, in movies, and even radio, this an unabridged reprinting of the first novel to introduce Buck Rogers to the reading public. In Armageddon – 2419 A.D., Buck, a victim of accidental suspended animation, awakens five hundred years later to discover America groaning under the tyranny of the villainous Han, ruling from the safety of their armored machine-cities. Falling in love with one of Americas new warrior-women, Wilma Deering, Rogers soon become a central figure in using newly-developed scientific weapons – disintegrators, jumping belts, inertron, and paralysis rays – to revolt against the Han. For scientific interest as well as suspense little science fiction could hold its own with this particular story. It is one of those rare stories that will bear reading and re-reading many times. Amazing Stories. Wonderful! I loved it. — Ray Bradbury
