This vintage book contains H. G. Wells' 1903 short story, “The Land Ironclads”. It was first published in the “Strand Magazine” and features "land ironclads," 100-foot-long war machines that are equipped with remotely controlled guns and are designed to house riflemen, engineers, and a captain. Unsurprisingly, the story was a contributing factor to Wells' reputation as a prophetic writer after tanks first appeared on the battlefield in 1916. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). "The Father of Science Fiction" was also a staunch socialist, and his later works are increasingly political and didactic. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
