(? -? ) Unidentified author, almost certainly UK and pseudonymous, whose Future War tale, Chapters from Future History: The Battle of Berlin (Die Schlacht von Königsberg) (dated 1890 but 1871 chap), combats the pessimistic Battle of Dorking scenario through its focus on an 1875 Germany about to turn republican. An Invasion on the part of British and other forces, and the defeat of Russian imperialists, indeed generates a republic, and the eventual confederation of all Europe (except, prophetically, the UK).
