Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: " vain is man, and so blinded by his vanity..." The perfect target for an envious race of Martians, denizens of a dying planet, in search of greener pastures. Streaking like meteors through the night sky, the aliens arrive, determined to exterminate mankind and colonize the Earth. Nothing stands in their way. With technology and weaponry far beyond anything Man has conceived, they begin the systematic destruction of England and the world. Written at a time when England, and Europe, expected war, and shortly after astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli reported discovering 'canals' on Mars, the novel served as a cautionary tale about English imperialism and mankinds tendency toward war. The basis for movies and the famous radio play the caused a nationwide panic in 1939, here is the original science-fiction story of alien invasion.
