Thunderchild - Fictional Description - Aftermath


The attack by Thunder Child occupied the Martians long enough for three other Royal Navy ironclads to arrive. The fate of the third Martian fighting machine is not revealed by Wells, but the battle did enable the civilian shipping to escape.

As depicted in the book, Thunder Child is the only human artifact which can compete with the Martian fighting-machines on anything like equal terms, the battle clearly giving a morale boost to hard-pressed humanity.

In the novel the episode concerning HMS Thunder Child is in "Chapter Seventeen: The "Thunder Child"" ending Book One: The Coming of the Martians.
