The War of the Worlds is a novel written by H. G. Wells in 1898, depicting an alien invasion of the earth, and is often regarded as being the first to depict such a disaster.

The book tells the story of a Martian invasion of Earth. The Martians, fleeing their own planet because its resources are depleted, invade Earth, landing in England, sweeping through the countryside, destroying or capturing everything in their path.

Any effort by the humans to thwart the Martian advance is crushed; the alien invaders seem unstoppable.

Since its publication, The War of the Worlds has entered popular culture, with a vast number of books, films, TV series and comic books created using its themes.
