That's an interesting question, pfr. There is often an assumption in science fiction of all kinds that military strategy is 'transferrable' species to species. But it isnt obvious that is true. A good comparasion to "War of the Worlds" is John Wyndham's "The Kraken Wakes" which is also an invasion of the Earth from Mars (perhaps.) The "military strategy" is quite different.
