Americans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse were two of the greatest inventors of the industrial age. In the 1880s, they would put forward competing electric systems which would become known as the ‘war of the currents’, a battle of science and business to determine which would power the modern world. Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison ends up lighting the whole of Manhattan. However, Westinghouse has a powerful ally of his own in Nikola Tesla, who believes he has found serious flaws in Edison’s design, proposing their own alternative. ‘The Current War’ is an educational insight into some of the most influential individuals of the time period, and a pivotal moment in scientific advancement.
The story of the man behind the theory of evolution and how his greatest work was written against a backdrop of tragedy.
