The Telegraph and The Atlantic Cable is the story of the beginning of modern telecommunications. It examines the pioneers Morse, Cooke, Wheatstone, Cyrus Field and others who imagined and developed the ideas of the telegraph, the Atlantic Cable, and the research and discoveries that made it possible. Lundy examines the great entrepreneurs, businessmen, scientists and engineers, their inventions, the beginnings of networks, and the growth of the businesses that gave rise to telecom as it is today. He reviews the early development of optical and electrical telegraphs, the lives of those who made it possible, and the inspiring story of the first trans-Atlantic telegraph cable. An understanding of the origins and development of telecom is valuable for anyone who works with or uses the Internet or cell phones today. The Telegraph and The Atlantic Cable is the inspiring story of how seemingly insurmountable hardships were overcome to bring to us the world of modern communications.
