Find Your Fate #14 - Operation: Thunderbolt
Ballantine Books published a series of Young Adult books under the "Find
Your Fate" logo. The gimmick - by making decisions at certain points of
the book, you changed the outcome of the story and you went to a certain
page instead of another.
Pictured above is number 14 in the series - Operation: Thunderbolt by K.C. Edwards. The book is 88 pages in length, its ISBN # is
0-345-33791-3, and it was first published in February of 1987.
The back of the book reads:
Cobra has pitched the world into confusion. Only the GI Joe Team can
prevent the triumph of evil in OPERATION: THUNDERBOLT.
You and Leatherneck are in the recreation area aboard the GI Joe aircraft
carrier, the U.S.S. Flagg, relaxing and watching the last few minutes of the
Super Bowl, when all of a sudden, an explosion rips through the stadium and the
TV set goes blank!
Hawk calls out the strike force, Roadblock, heavy machine gunner...Recondo,
jungle infantryman...Low-Light, night spotter...Cutter, Hovercraft pilot...Deep
Six, driver...Shipwreck, naval commando...Leatherneck, your buddy...and you,
Zapper, sharpshooter and electronics expert. Your mission: to penetrate
the Cobra Command Center and neutralize it!
But first you must get past frontline Cobra defense-jets, F.A.N.G.'s, and
waves of Cobra Eels. Be careful, Zapper, but be quick. Whole
continents could perish as you FIND YOUR FATE.
The cover was painted by Hector Garrido.
