Peter Fleming

Peter Fleming, OBE, (1907-1971) was a journalist and writer and one of the last great adventurers of the twentieth century. He began his career as a special correspondent with The Times and later wrote for The Spectator. He served with the Grenadier Guards during World War II and from 1942 was in charge of military deception operations in Southeast Asia. He is author of several classic books, which include Brazilian Adventure, To Peking, Bayonets to Lhasa, Operation Sea Lion (The Peter Fleming Collection, Tauris Parke Paperbacks), and One's Company. In his memory, The Royal Geographical Society established The Peter Fleming Award for projects that seek to advance geographical science.
