The original manuscript used for the notorious 1938 Mercury Theatre broadcast of The War of the Worlds, this book includes notes and changes to the script marked by the broadcast's director and narrator: Orson Welles. The script was adapted from the H. G. Wells novel by Howard E. Koch, co-writer of Casablanca, and follows the chilling tale of an alien invasion of Earth that threatens to destroy humanity.
