Summary (From the publisher):

The planets Arisia and Eddore were at war for control of the Universe. The battleground was a tiny, backward planet in a remote galaxy. Earth.

Only a few Earthlings knew of the titanic struggle, and of the strange, decisive role they were to play in the war of the super-races.

Here is the beginning of "Doc" Smith's famous Lensman series--the celebrated adventures that set the standard for all science fiction.
