H. G. Wells sets forth an intriguing, first-hand observation of Italy, France, and Britain under severe duress during the “War to End All Wars,” World War I. He examines the technological effects of modern warfare on human nature, particularly the introduction of the tank and aerial bombing. Two prophetic visions of his philosophy to truly end all war are revealed: the control of war weapons and the creation of a world state.

    " H.G. Well's utopianism can be nauseating, but the book had vivid descriptions and prescient insights. "

    " This has to be one of the most depressing books I have ever read. H.G. Wells' "The World Set Free" lends a whole new meaning to the word dystopia. I had to stop myself from reading it on numerous occasions as I found I was very depressed by what I was reading. "

    " Such an amazing author! How did H.G. Wells know the things he knew? This story was horrifying & amazing & I really loved it. "

    " Well, what can you say about a book, published in 1913, which predicted the atomic bomb? OK, he had it being used on Berlin in 1956, but not bad, not bad ata all. "
