Originally published in 1907, this little-known science fiction classic describes a planet beset by world war---a war involving super-weapons of almost inconceivable power---"Can there be anything too horrible for the enemies of the Fatherland?" said the Kaiser to the pale Chancellor, with a glint in his eyes which no man in Germany cares to see...While millions of people are dying, the Kaiser, the Tsar, the Kings of Holland & Belgium, and the President of France celebrate the war's continued victory in Canterbury, laughing as their submersible airships rain death on innocent Britons as their soldiers march ever closer toward London...The World Peril of 1910 is one of the first books to describe the potential of a comet impact with earth, it includes the world's first countdown...George Griffith thrilled readers with his all-too-credible depiction of the dangers of War, misplaced-nationalism, and the arms race that was coming.
