“I liked the description of the Martians. I think he was really lucky to escape. Lots of people didn’t.” Jordan, 8
No one would have believed that planet earth was being watched by creatures more intelligent than humankind.

What can possibly stop an invading army equipped with heat-rays and poisonous black gas, intent on wiping out the human race?
This is one man’s story of that incredible invasion, from the time the first Martians land near his home town, to the destruction of London.
Is this the end of human life?
