Introduction and Notes by Brian Stableford
The Final War ( aka La guerre finale : histoire fantastique 1885 )
Naval Battles of the Future - by Maurice Loir ( aka Batailles navales de l'avenir 1897 )

The Final War - takes the European arms race of the late 19th century to its logical end: a terrifying deadlock due to the political and social paralysis caused by weapons sufficiently powerful to be seemingly unbeatable.
Naval Battles of the Future - takes the form of a series of journal entries by a perceptive and philosophical naval officer aboard a French vessel engaged in dreadnought warfare in the Mediterranean. It is a sobering reflection on patriotism, solidarity, and ambition, and a reminder of the human element in war-future, final, or otherwise.
