Not all invasion threats were purported to come from the Germans, the French or from Anarchists: in M.P. Shiel's Yellow Danger it is an army of Chinese who invade Europe.

"The Yellow Danger" has been the bugbear of the Russians ever since the days of Tamerlane. But it must be admitted that in his new story.
