Synopsis for Wonder Woman: "The Purloined Pressure Coordinator"

Wonder Woman designs for the American Navy a new cruiser that can repel all torpedo fire, via a hydraulic pressure coordinator that operates a network of shields. Once the first such cruiser, the U.S.S. Tropica, is finished, it is sent on a transatlantic WAAC convoy - with Diana and the Holliday girls (temporarily made WAAC adjuncts) riding along, secretly investigating Col. Darnell's concerns that Chief Engineer Alltrue Blythe may be a spy.

Three days after launch, the Tropica is attacked by Nazi submarines, which it easily repels. Shortly after, however, the pressure coordinator is stolen - not by Blythe, but by his secretary Bertha, the real spy onboard. Now unable to deploy its shields, the Tropica is quickly sunk by a new submarine. This submarine takes a small retinue of survivors, including Blythe and Bertha, onboard; the remaining WAACs are found and rescued by Wonder Woman, who tows them all to the nearby Verdure Island.

Unfortunately, Verdure has already been occupied by the Nazis, who find Wonder Woman after dark and take her prisoner. When Wonder Woman refuses to explain the mechanics of her pressure coordinator, she is bound hand and foot and left to die in quicksand. Simultaneously, news of the Tropica sinking is broadcast to Steve, who immediately commandeers the invisible plane and flies to Verdure, saving Wonder Woman in the nick of time.

Together, Wonder Woman, Steve, and the WAACs rout the Nazis and recover the pressure coordinator from Bertha, who is forced to confess her treachery under the Lasso of Truth. Subsequently, Wonder Woman apologizes to Blythe for mistakenly suspecting him instead.
