German inventor worked in several Russian cities. One chapter is devoted to his activity in the Caucasus. Werner von Siemens was a typical son of its era, XIX century, with its turbulent political events and amusing technical inventions. However, despite the fantastic rise of scientific thought and social development, Siemens was ahead of its time. One of the features of his autobiography is the German imperturbable composure with which Siemens describes his life's adversities and dangerous adventures, which, in fact, were the true life of the inventor of electric locomotives, tram, trolley, elektrolift; of the tracer of transcontinental telegraph lines, of the founder of the Siemens Company.
The biography of Werner von Siemens was published in the second book of the "LocoTech Library" series. Total to date three books were published: "To move the mountains and inspire the people" about Robert Gilmour Le Tourneau, "How I invented the world" of Werner von Siemens and "The man who invented the world" of George Westinghouse.
