Red Alert [A Whisky Priest Book]

ByPeter George

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"This is the story of a battle. A battle fought in the skies over the Arctic and over Russia, on an American Strategic Air Command Base, and in the minds of men. Its duration was only two hours... It may even be happening as you read these words. And then it really will be two hours to doom." Peter Bryan George (1924-1966) was an RAF navigator who became obsessed with nuclear war, and committed to disarmament. His first novel, Red Alert, became the inspiration for Stanley Kubrick’s film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, for which George later wrote the novelisation. His second novel, Commander-1, was a look at the after-effects of a massive nuclear war, and he was writing a third novel along the same lines, Nuclear Survivors, when he committed suicide at the age of 42.
