A gripping war adventure tale from the 1890s

In this imagined war, coalition forces led by Russia and France invade Britain and make several early advances, but the Germans land in Britain as allies and help to repulse the invasion. The brave English patriots, together with German soldiers, try to turn the tide.

Written twenty years before the start of World War I in 1914, Le Queux’s novel is considered to have influenced many subsequent works, including H. G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds.

About the Author

William Le Queux (1864–1927) was an Anglo-French journalist and writer, diplomat, traveler, flying buff, and wireless pioneer who broadcast music from his own station long before radio was generally available. He was phenomenally successful as a novelist and short-story writer, and many of his tales are based on his own exploits, albeit vastly exaggerated. He is widely recognized as one of the first creators of the spy story genre, in which his diplomatic background, familiarity with European high society and his interest in technology combined to create a rich tapestry for his intrigues.
