The War of the Worlds
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.
