(1903-1966) US soldier, in the US army 1927-1946, retiring with the rank of Brigadier General. He was the author of two borderline sf novels set in the very Near Future, Red January (1964) and China Strike (1967), both featuring US pre-emptive strikes against the enemy – in the first case Cuba, about to blackmail the USA; and in the second China, on the verge of dropping a cobalt bomb on her. In each case, the enemies of democracy are defeated. [JC]
