Description
Read this stunning Vintage Classics edition of the original story of alien invasion from the father of science fiction, H.G. Wells.

No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied.

Then, late one night, in the middle of the English countryside, they landed.
