This revelatory new book delves deeply into the groundbreaking ideas and astonishing mind of one of the greatest geniuses of modern times, exploring the historical impact of Tesla’s particle beam weapon and other brilliant work—and how it continues to shape global military strategies today. “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 forty 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.

Editorial Reviews

“Simon Vance…[with] his precise diction, with just a wisp of Oxbridge, here resurrects a forgotten genius…Vance gives this enthralling biography the touch of fustian pomp appropriate to a dandy who lived at the Waldorf Astoria.” AudioFile
“It is my opinion that Dr. Seifer leads the world as the most authoritative of all the Tesla researchers.” J. W. McGinnis, president, International Tesla Society, praise for the author
