The Invasion is the story of the first arrival of Extra-Terrestrials to Earth, the havoc they cause humans, and the victory of the valiant group of humans who finally evict alien intruders from Earth.
When the first messages were detected, scientists believed that we would never meet the Extra-Terrestrials because of the great distance between them and us. It was hoped that we could learn from them but even that possibility seemed remote since it would take at least four years to get a response to a message. And at first, there was little real communication because of the response time and language differences but a cult grew anyway, attributing aliens with high intelligence and an advanced society. Even so, many were wary of aliens but it didn't matter because they were so far away that all scientists believed that physical contact would be impossible. But then Earth learned that aliens were coming. Even though it would be many more years before the aliens' arrival, the cult became a bureaucracy that enforced politically correct attitudes about the VEEZEE.
Still, Ed Halloran (although he was an agent of the bureaucracy) worried that the aliens might not be the benign benefactors that had been claimed. And he was right, because aliens came in a cloud of devastation, and it was soon obvious that alien physiology and alien concepts of society and personhood were incompatible with human life. Halloran, along with his partner Marilee Sharp, and an army made up of very old soldiers and very young recruits, were called upon to rid Earth of the scourge.
