The cable : the wire that changed the world

Cookson, Gillian2003
Books
This is the compelling story of how the first transatlantic cable was laid - the people who dared, the people who lost, and the people who profited. It tells of the dramatic attempts to cross the Atlantic during the 1850s and 1860s from the first failed attempts to the project that finally succeeded.
