Kipling, Arthur Wellesley

Tagged: Author

(1885-1947) US author of two Future-War novels. The New Dominion: A Tale of Tomorrow's War (1908), a Yellow Peril tale, pits the USA triumphantly against Japan and Germany, with the help of Great Britain; and The Shadow of Glory: Being a History of the Great War 1910-1911 (1910) unusually visualizes that the conflict so frequently predicted in Dreadful Warning tales of this period is in fact worldwide, and is therefore predictive of World War One.
