Description:

The War of the Worlds (1898), by H. G. Wells, is an early science fiction novel which describes an invasion of England by aliens from Mars. It is one of the earliest and best-known depictions of an alien invasion of Earth, and has influenced many others, as well as spawning several films, radio dramas, comic book adaptations, and a television series based on the story. The 1938 radio broadcast caused public outcry against the episode, as many listeners believed that an actual Martian invasion was in progress, a notable example of mass hysteria.

Description:

On one terrible night in August 1895, the world changed forever. Grey metal cylinders, launched from Mars and hurtled through space, came crashing down in southern England. The next 15 days were marked by courage and despair, hope and shock, defeat and fleeting victory as Queen Victoria's army struggled to contain the terrible alien threat. The war, man against machines from space, was fought without mercy on both sides. And the outcome would be decided by the smallest of things... This book covers the whole of the Anglo-Martian conflict, beginning with a look at the relative strengths and weakness of the two armies, both English and alien, and comparing the different strategies employed. It then takes a detailed look at the actual military struggle, covering all of the major engagements between the tripods and Victoria's army.

Description:

First published in 1898, "The War of the Worlds" terri¬fied and entertained many generations of readers. The audacious portrayal of aliens landing on Earth alongside the themes of interplanetary imperialism, technological holocaust, and, finally, chaos itself provoked a collective hysteria when it was adapted for radio show by Orson Welles in 1938 and it is now an indispensable book for any science fiction fan. Brilliantly imagined, visionary, and with a bit of goosebumps, this novel is a profound impact on our discussed loneliness in the world. *** The ns_english collection features literary classics in their original language, putting the reader in direct contact with the words – and the legacy – of the greatest names of the world literature. Here you will find the integral text in English, enabling new interpretations, insights, and studies of works that have helped weave the history of the world – and that will be forever in our memories.
