あらすじ・解説

"In a few years hence, it will be possible for nations to fight without armies, ships or guns, by weapons far more terrible to the destructive action and range of which there is virtually no limit. Any city at any distance whatsoever from the enemy can be destroyed by him and no power on Earth can stop him from doing so." - Nikola Tesla, circa 1925 

Drawing on 40 years of research and a treasure trove of new information, Tesla: Wizard at War provides a comprehensive view of Tesla's discoveries, which continue to influence today's military technology and diplomatic strategies. One of the world's leading Tesla experts, Marc J. Seifer, offers new insight into the brilliant scientist's particle beam weapon (aka the "Death Ray") and explores his military negotiations with pivotal historical figures - including his links to Joseph Stalin, Vannevar Bush, General Andrew McNaughton, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. 

From Tesla's role in the origins of Star Wars technology and his dynamic theory of gravity, to the real purpose behind the iconic tower at Wardenclyffe, this is an eye-opening account of Tesla's projects, passions, and ambitions - and an illuminating, important study of one of history's most intriguing figures.

Amazing story told by an amazing storyteller!

Tesla was an amazing man. I think the world knows that by now. But just HOW amazing? I had no idea! And learning about this man, how he was 100 years ahead of his time, was a thrill for me. I looked forward to every fascinating minute of this read. And Simon Vance was the perfect narrator for this book. To hear him read it, you'd think it was him telling the story himself. He didn't stumble over or mispronounce any of the many foreign and difficult names in this book and I was most impressed with how he spouted the patent numbers of each of Tesla's and many, many others' inventions. It was definitely 5 stars!

Tesla: Beyond Wardenclyffe

Marc Seifer has done it again. With Wizard, the Life and Times of Nikola Tesla, his extensive and authoritative account of the many accomplishments of Tesla, he singlehandedly plucked the great inventor from near-obscurity and brought him back into public awareness. Now, with Tesla: Wizard at War, Seifer dives deeper, not only revealing new facts about Wardenclyffe, but continues the Tesla story into the war years and beyond. Using many primary sources Seifer’s meticulous research has ferreted out the facts behind Tesla’s political connections, his involvement with the US Navy and Telefunken, and his impassioned efforts to sell his teleforce concepts to world powers in order to end war. This never-before-told story related by the foremost authority on Nikola Tesla, and the intriguing thesis it leads us to is not to be missed.

Good but I was hoping for something different

first off I have to say that the author cuts his own credibility right off the bat by mentioning his involvement in the series Ancient Aliens. I have not seen the Tesla program to which he attributes himself yet but I will look for that. Having said that, it's quite possible that he is the foremost expert on Tesla since it's basically his life's work.

with regard to the book itself, it's quite interesting and portrays Tesla as an eccentric and possibly slightly nutty individual. That's not to take anything away from Tesla as he is clearly a genius and visionary. but I suppose with that comes the eccentricity that's described in this book.

The focus on the book appears to be Tesla's involvement in war and the ultimate weapon. however the book carries off on many tangents and then attempts to tie them back into the theme of the book.

towards the end I believe that the author delves a little bit too much into speculation. I won't spoil it for those who wish to read the book.
