When the Tripods Came - John Christopher

A prequel to The Tripods trilogy.

When it comes to alien invasions, bad things come in threes.

Three landings: one in England, one in Russia, and one in the United States.

Three long legs, crushing everything in their paths, with three metallic arms, snaking out to embrace – and then discard – their helpless victims.

Three evil beings, called Tripods, which will change life on this planet forever.
