9780803298200: The Last War: A World Set Free (Bison Frontiers of Imagination)

"From nearly two hundred centres, and every week added to their number, roared the unquenchable crimson conflagrations of the atomic bombs. The flimsy fabric of the world's credit had vanished, industry was completed disorganised, and every city, every thickly populated area was starving or trembled on the verge of starvation. Most of the capital cities of the world were burning; millions of people had already perished, and over great areas government was at an end." The Last War erupts in Europe, rapidly escalating from bloody trench warfare and vicious aerial duels into a world-consuming, atomic holocaust. Paris is engulfed by an atomic maelstrom, Berlin is an ever-flaming crater, the cold waters of the North Sea roar past Dutch dikes and sweep across the Low Countries. Moscow, Chicago, Tokyo, London, and hundreds of other cities become radioactive wastelands. Governments topple, age-old cultural legacies are destroyed, and the stage is set for a new social and political order. The Last War is H. G. Wells's chilling and prophetic tale of a world gone mad with atomic weapons and of the rebirth of human-kind from the rubble. Written long before the atomic age, Wells's novel is a riveting and intelligent history of the future that discusses for the first time the horrors of the atomic bomb, offering a startling vision of humanity purged by a catastrophic atomic war.

About the Author:

H. G. Wells (1866–1946) is one of the most influential figures in the history of science fiction. His books include The Sleeper Awakes, also available in a Bison Frontiers of Imagination edition. Greg Bear is a celebrated science fiction writer and winner of the Nebula Award. He is the author of such acclaimed novels as The Forge of God, Eon, and Moving Mars.

From Library Journal:

Wells was a visionary author, and many of his sf novels featured innovations that later came to pass. This 1914 novel depicts an atomic war that ravages the globe.
