    One of Mr. Well's best stories of war

    This book is possibly the best story of total war ever written. It is a chillingly accurate prediction to the use of war planes in conflict by the prophet that is Wells. And his words in the preface of the 1942 edition, ' I told you so you damned fools' Mr. Wells if you were alive today you would say the same thing on Hiroshima and 911
