Fake documentary shows terrifying war against the Martians in 1913

I'm glad the History Channel is producing mockumentaries like The Great Martian War. The real documentaries are not much different and science-fiction alternative history lines are always more interesting than our savage and grim historical realities. It's also very well made.


On its 100th anniversary, The Great Martian War tells the story of the catastrophic events and unimaginable horrors of 1913-17, when Humankind was pitted against a savage Alien invasion.

With powerful and detailed First World War parallels, The Great Martian War fuses sci-fi fantasy with specialist factual history to explore the real-world tragedies and unique horror of World War One.


I really hope there are idiots who believe it all.

My great grandfather fought in that war. As he was fighting in the trenches, he found a baby Martian and took pity on him. He kept him a secret until the day he died - named it Roger and fed it Chardonnay. Even when he worked for the CIA after the war, they never found out. From the way my Granddad told me, they would just dress "Roger" up in various disguises. Very interesting stuff. No wonder they were called the "Lost Generation."
