War of the Worlds : The Anglo-Martian War of 1895 Paperback

Illustrated by Alan Lathwell

Part of the Dark Osprey series


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.
