Among the first literary works to feature a war between humans and extraterrestrial beings, The War of the Worlds is one of the most talked-about works of science fiction in history.

After a strange shooting star illuminates England's night sky, a mysterious cylinder is discovered in Surrey. Despite the local people's attempt at a calm approach, when extraterrestrial beings emerge from the curious object, it's soon evident that peace is far from their minds.

First published in 1897, The War of the Worlds is H. G. Wells' famous science fiction masterpiece. The novel has obvious connections with the popular invasion fiction of the time, and has been interpreted as an exploration of British imperialism, evolution theory, and Victorian superstitions.
