Synopsis

First the Mars probe picked up an anomaly.
Then NASA saw some strange activity, and many stargazers noticed meteorites rocketing towards earth.
A cylinder surreptitiously landed in Wisconsin, then another, and another, ... and then invasion from Mars.
The War of the Worlds had begun.
War of the Worlds:New Millennium follows in the great tradition of Wells' original masterpiece, Niven and Pournelle's Footfall, and 'V' the mini-series. It is the story of an alien invasion of earth as told from numerous viewpoints:
- a writer in rural Wisconsin
- a soldier in the field
- a science advisor to the president
As tripods leave a swath of destruction across the Americas, Washington groups some of its great minds to solve the problem as the Pentagon throws at the invaders the latest hardware the military has to offer.
At stake is the survival of the human race and the dominion of planet earth.
Filled with techno-thriller like detail War of the Worlds: New Millennium merges Clancy with Clarke for a truly page turning science fiction thriller.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
