Imagine if H.G.Wells' Martians launched their attack tomorrow.
First there was the mysterious loss of contact with the Mars probe.
Then a few flashes of light detected via telescope on the planet's surface, and several pieces of undefined space debris traveled through space and fell to earth.
And thus the "War of the Worlds" began.
From an isolated farmhouse in rural Wisconsin to the mall in Washington D.C., our world had becomes a battlefield against the alien intruders from Mars whose superior weapons and defenses dwarfed the Pentagon's latest weaponry.
By order of the President, scientists and soldiers pooled resources and inspiration to overcome a threat that appeared bent on our annihilation, while all across the land brave and bold Americans waged their own efforts of resistance against the Martian menace.
At stake not just the dominion of Earth, but mankind's own survival.
Inspired by the H.G.Wells masterwork "War of the Worlds" and updated with the technothriller technology of today, Douglas Niles has written a contemporary novel of alien invasion that successfully combines the genres of Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle with Tom Clancy and Larry Bond.
