Facing the Flag or For the Flag (French: Face au drapeau) is an 1896 patriotic novel by Jules Verne. The book is part of the Voyages Extraordinaires (The Extraordinary Voyages) series.­Like The Begum's Millions which Verne published in 1879 , it has the theme of France and the entire world threatened by a super-­weapon (what would now be called a weapon of mass destruction) with the threat finally overcome through the force of French patriotism.­It can be considered one of the first books dealing with problems which was to become paramount half a century after its publication: brilliant scientists discovering new weapons of great destructive power, whose full utilisation might literally destroy the world; the competition between various powers to obtain control of such weapons; and also the efforts of ruthless non-­state groups to have it. Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
