    MOBI PeterBryant ✓ Red Alert eBook ç ✓ alert ebok, Red Alert PDFI chose this book because I knew that one of my favorite movies Dr Strangelove by Kubrick was based on this novel However this is one of those few occasions when movie is way better than the book Basically take out all the satire and funny parts great acting and characters from the movie and leave the core idea of an accidental nuclear war and you will get this novel You won't lose anything if you don't read the book however you lost a lot if you haven't seen the movie yet

    MOBI PeterBryant ✓ Red Alert eBook ç ✓ alert ebok, Red Alert PDFFrom read Peter Bryant's 1958 novel Red Alert which was the inspiration for the movie Dr Strangelove The two diverge in very significant ways that ultimately highlight Stanley Kubrick's creative talents not to mention Peter Sellers' The novel is earnest and dead serious A rogue general the novel's uentin becomes Jack D Ripper in the movie decides the only way to save the world is to destroy the Soviet Union's nuclear arsenal even though that means killing millions of people He uses a top secret plan that tells bombers to attack then puts his base on lockdown so that no one can recall themWhat Kubrick saw was that the story was so serious crazy and yet ultimately rather believable that the narrative deserved to have a mocking tone Dr Strangelove is not in the novel nor are there references to precious bodily fluids or George C Scott's goofy gum chomping general or the Colonel Bat Guano's constant references to commie preverts The novel in fact does not have the Do

    MOBI PeterBryant ✓ Red Alert eBook ç ✓ alert ebok, Red Alert PDFThis is the book that Dr Strangelove the classic Stanley Kubrik anti nuclear film was based on However the book and Fail Safe were so similar and that there was a film coming out about Fail Safe at the same time Kubrik changed it all like he would with the screen play of 2001 A Space Odyssey That said the basics of what is in the film is here A rogue general using his own authority launches a nuclear attack as the Soviets in attempt to win the Cold War by a uick and calculated strike against the Soviets ability to launch missiles The book was written just a year after Sputnik The President talks to the Joint Chiefs about hearing from the CIA about the ultimate doomsday device that could kill everyone in the world The character names are different some of the action scenes are different and there is no mad nazi scientist in the President's staff Ultimately

    MOBI PeterBryant ✓ Red Alert eBook ç ✓ alert ebok, Red Alert PDFCast aside if you can all thought of Stanley Kubrick or Peter Sellers Two Hours to Doom aka Red Alert may be a cynical warning of a novel but it is not a comical one Peter George's best known work is deadly serious in tone and a Cold War thriller with a difference Most books of this kind are predicated on the assumption of devious plots being hatched in the Kremlin or sometimes the White House George poses a scenario created by a rogue USAF General that reuires both capitals to react and co operate rather than initiate events Some have suggested this is dull and I can't for the life of me think why For my taste this kept me continually gripped Each chapter rotates through three main perspectives being the situation room in Washington the Air Force base in Texas and onboard the bomber Alabama Angel All have their own mix of tensions and interactions which engaged me throughoutGeorge's experience of RAF bomber missions in the second world war lend a sheen of au
