George W. Landau was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1920. He became a naturalized citizen of the United States of America in 1943. In 1942, he joined the United States Army as a private and had achieved the rank of Captain by the end of his active duty in 1947. His fluency in German and his Austrian origin made him valuable to the United States Military Intelligence Service in Austria during World War II. In 1947, Landau became an active reserve officer until he retired as a Colonel in 1975.
