And then they died from bacteria?

Also, neat. Part of that totally real historical and scientific documentary series I see, same series as this one is from:

 That looks like a combination of the original book and the sequel that an author (dang old man brain can not pull the name out of memory) published not long ago . I got a lot of acclaim as being very close to what Well's might have written and I agree , personally .

Thank you I enjoyed it .

My personal favourite version of the War of the Worlds story type is Dawn of Victory: http://www.dawnofvictory2289.com/

Aliens invade during WW2, alternate history happens, WW2 never really ends and the story stretches on into the late 2200s

There was a tabletop game called 'all quiet on the martian front' based on 'the war of the worlds' that acts as a continuation of the original story. It is basically dead, but it had a lot of promise and was basically tailor made for my tastes. If nothing else, it has a fantastic rulebook with tons of great worldbuilding.

 If you like alternate history you should try out Harry Turtledove's books . He has a WW2 series of 4 books which is the same as the one you mentioned (aliens invade) and it then continues on with a 4 books series into later times . A WW1 series of 3 or 6 books (since I did not read them I do not know if the other series is connected or separate) . And a personal favorite of mine based in the USA civil war titled 'Guns of the South' . Another very good alternate history of the USA civil war  is Harry Harrison's 4 book series .

It is the other way around. The footage is part of a docudrama made about 5 years ago. It is around on the Youtubes if you are interested. The book came out last year, Stephen Baxter, who also wrote a sequel H G Wells' Time Machine back in the day

The Turtledove books are exactly what Dawn of Victory is based upon   :D

One of Harrison's best series although the West of Eden trilogy is my personal favorite and would be an awesome movie.
