#18 A Soldier Fights Back


Army and Marine units were stationed in the countryside to try to protect frightened citizens that had evacuated the city. Families lived in caves, depending on nature for their food. The Martians, discovering this, sent warriors out to hunt them down. Watching the small backroads, the invaders destroyed all the humans they saw. A U. S. soldier was patrolling his sector when he saw several Martians wrecking automobiles. Unable to control his anger he darted out of his hiding place, determined to kill the hated enemy. Before the heroic soldier could strike, a ray from a Martianís gun ended his life.
