Captain Philip Strange battles a mechanical pterodactyl developed by the Germans to terrify the Allies. Strange claims unnamed “scientists” believe in the existence of dinosaurs living in “an almost impassable jungle in South America.” Strange even remembers Harmer, a Canadian explorer, who talked of a “lost world” in “the upper Amazon country.” Strange is referring to Maple White Land from Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World.
