Bert blunders into the first wave of attack in the first war in the air and goes through an exiting and imaginative series of adventures. But it is much more than inviting entertainment. The most impressive is Wells' insight into the future. The story was published in 1908 but what it tells comes very close to our present world... You can force a country on its knees with a large airforce, but what to do after that? We know that all too well, reading about the wars in Iraq and Afganistan in our newpapers every day: trouble starts. And we have to deal with that somehow. Wells already knew before the first world war, before the first bomb ever came tumbling out from the sky.
