About the Author

Peter Bryan George (26 March 1924 - 1 June 1966) was a British author, most famous for the 1958 Cold War thriller novel Red Alert, which was first published under the title Two Hours to Doom and written under the pen name Peter Bryant. The book was drawn from personal experience, and was the inspiration for Stanley Kubrick’s classic film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

Born in Treorchy, Rhondda, Wales, George was a flight lieutenant and navigator in the Royal Air Force during World War II serving with No. 255 Squadron RAF flying night fighter missions over Malta and Italy. He rejoined the RAF serving at RAF Neatishead and as a fighter controller where he often wrote on duty and used a nom de plume. He retired from the service in 1961.

Peter George committed suicide in Hastings, East Sussex in 1966.
