During the War of the Worlds story by H.G. Wells, there is a scene were a British ironclad makes a stand to defend a paddle steamer full of fleeing refugees. It is in the River Blackwater off of the coast of Essex near the town of Maldon. As the paddle steamer pulls out into the river, three huge Martian tripods wade out into the water in pursuit of the helpless paddle steamer and all aboard.
It is at this grand moment when H.M.S. Thunder Child, the British ironclad, decides to attack with everything she can muster. The pastiche story called: The Last Days of Thunder Child brings the days leading up to the event. We see the Martian invaders through the eyes of the disbelieving crew of H.M.S. Thunder Child. The reader can embark upon Thunder Child's final voyage and watch as the brave crew makes their gallant stand. Read The Last Days of Thunder Child by C.A. Powell.
