It is the other bookend to Rosh Hashana – the culmination of the Ten Days of Repentance (`Aseret Y’mey Hatshuva) which began on that day.

 Amazon.com: Music: War of the Worlds [SOUNDTRACK]
War of the Worlds culminates with "Escape from the Basket," in which Williams methodically builds tension over close to ten minutes.
"The War of the Worlds," Spielberg-style, is a riveting, gut-wrenching, wholly one-of-a-kind science fiction colossus that puts the viewer into the story and leaves him as clueless as the characters in the film-- no scientist to explain things, no kindly professor to assess what "probably" is happening and why, no other unrealistic explanatory device.
There are already mixed commentaries on both Steven Spielberg's new film "War of the Worlds" and the impressive score composed for it by the great John Williams.

First published in 1909 and written at white hot intensity in ten days, this is the essential work for understanding Gandhi's doctrines, and the only one he translated himself from the original Gujarati into English.
Gandhi trenchantly presents here all of his typical themes of national nonviolent struggle, his insistence that Indians must rule themselves internally to gain external freedom, and his denunciation of industrial civilization.
Several major short writings are also included, notably his speech at the beginning of World War II that Britain "Quit India" at once in spite of the war, and his rejected draft constitution for the Indian National Congress, changing it from a political party into a social movement.
