The Fantastic Albert Robida and Pierre Giffard and their prescient UFO creations

Pierre Giffard published La Guerre Infernale, a serialized magazine in France at the turn of the 20th Century.

It was a sensation, enhanced by Albert Robida's drawings.

Copies of the magazine are signified at http://digital.library.villanova.edu/Collection/vudl:292001

Here are Monseur Robida's flying saucer drawings from 1908:

Some UFO devotees see the drawings and accounts in La Guerre Infernale as the inspiration for Nazi Germany's foray into flying saucer design.

(The Infernal War was a war between France (Europe) and Germany in the fictional stories.)
