Blackwave you really have a talent for creating fictional universes where mankind is utterly fucked beyond comprehension.

Swarm on the Somme is an ongoing Alternate History Web Original story series in the Alien Space Bats sub-forum of, started in early autumn 2009.

The story is essentially a typical tale of Earth being invaded by a Horde of Alien Locusts, while unprepared humanity tries to unite and rally its forces against the Planet Looters. BUT this time, it's not set in the Present Day, or Next Sunday A.D., or World War II. This time, it occurs in the earliest months of World War I.
