The Times reports.
The Martian commander looks worried.
As the night draws to a close the Martians withdraw from the table, losses had been minimal with only a single loss in two hours of fighting.
Confidence in the human camp is high..... initiative shifts to the forces of the Crown as they seek to strike a blow for mankind and shrink the red stain on dear old Britannia.
The Martians are consolidated in the South and West of England, London is surrounded an island of humanity against the creatures from the red planet.
