Hailing from the backwoods of America, Maxim's triumphs included inventing the machine-gun, outpacing Edison in the race for a practicable light bulb, and designing, building and flying one of the earliest steam-powered aeroplanes. Eventually, knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to the British Army, Hiram Maxim was a supreme example of the self-made man.
