Battle of Dorking - REMINISCENCES OF A VOLUNTEER
Chesney’s "Battle of Dorking" - appeared in the Blackwood’s Magazine for May 1871. It touched off a chain reaction of alarm and indignation in the United Kingdom so much so that the prime minister, William Gladstone, felt he had to speak out against the "alarmism" of "a famous article called The Battle of Dorking." In The Battle of Dorking the narrator is a Volunteer, a half- trained soldier in the military who relates the story long after the German conquest. The Battle of Dorking set a precedent for Invasion Literature of the period and the eventual development of science fiction such a War of the Worlds.
