Wells is a work of fiction that I would take great pleasure in reading. It would not be because of the futuristic tales of creatures from Mars that would make it so enjoyable, but instead the major themes that present themselves in the novel. He drew many of his inspirations and ideas from our mutual friend, and his mentor, Thomas Henry Huxley. War of the Worlds helped perpetuate. G Wells exemplifies the bourgeoisies and the proletariats, through the Martians and the humans, so as to illuminate and emphasize the destruction being caused by the imperialistic expansion of Great Britain, during the turn of the 19th century. Hence, Wells is welcoming us to denounce socioeconomic forces, along with criticizing imperialism by revealing.
Coincidentally enough, however, one of the first mentions of extraterrestrial invaders comes from literature: the Martians from H. Despite their obvious non-human appearance and power, they still suffer from the same pitfalls that humanity, and life in its entirety, suffer from. This presents the first strength of the Martian invaders: their supreme, God-like invincibility. For example, when the military surrounded the Hornell Commons in an attempt to contain the Martians, the military was armed with Maxim guns, which were considered to be the most advanced weapons ever constructed this was the first automatic weapon, which looked much like a Gatling gun. Wells emphasizes the presence of these weapons because, when placed in historical context, the reader in would fully comprehend the awesome might of the Martian invaders. These machines could be eliminated, but in one of the only instances within the novel which this occurred, it took three warships with massive power in order to do so.
