9780141441306: The War in the Air (Penguin Classics)

A cornerstone of early science fiction and a haunting image of world war

Following the development of massive airships, naïve Londoner Bert Smallways becomes accidentally involved in a German plot to invade America by air and reduce New York to rubble. But although bombers devastate the city, they cannot overwhelm the country, and their attack leads not to victory but to the beginning of a new and horrific age for humanity. And so dawns the era of Total War, in which brutal aerial bombardments reduce the great cultures of the twentieth century to nothing. As civilization collapses around the Englishman, now stranded in a ruined America, he clings to only one hope - that he might return to London, and marry the woman he loves.

About the Author:

H.G. Wells was a professional writer and journalist, who published more than a hundred books, including novels, histories, essays and programmes for world regeneration. Wells's prophetic imagination was first displayed in pioneering works of science fiction, but later he became an apostle of socialism, science and progress. His controversial views on sexual equality and the shape of a truly developed nation remain directly relevant to our world today. He was, in Bertrand Russell's words, 'an important liberator of thought and action'.

Jay Winter is Professor of History at Yale University. He was previously Reader in History at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Pembroke College. He is a specialist on the First World War, and one of the founders of the Historial de la grande guerre at Peronne, Somme, an international museum of the Great War.

Patrick Parrinder
has written on H.G. Wells, science fiction, James Joyce and the history of the English novel. Since 1986 he has been Professor of English at the University of Reading.

Andy Sawyer
is a Librarian at the University of Sheffield with a particular interest in science fiction.
