Set in two parts, War of the Worlds tells the famous scenario of Martians invading Earth. We follow the narrator as he struggles to find his wife and escape as he witnesses the Martians lay waste to his town.
Man had not yet learned to fly when H.G. Wells conceived this story of a Martian attack on England. Giant cylinders crash to Earth, disgorging huge, unearthly creatures armed with heat-rays and fighting machines. Amid the boundless destruction they cause, it looks as if the end of the world has come.
