The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada 5 Stars
Damian Stevenson (Author)
The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada follows Naval Commander Ian Fleming as he attempts to gain control, on behalf of the British Government, of the French Fleet after the German occupation of France during World War Two.
This was an intriguing look into the lesser known side of Ian Fleming. A well researched and brilliantly written novelisation of Ian Fleming’s experiences during the early part of World War Two. Filled with scenarios that feel familiar, as Ian Fleming had used his own experiences, such as those featured in this book, as inspiration for his world famous Bond novels. The Ian Fleming files are filled with detailed descriptions and fast paced action. The author’s attention to detail in regards to setting the scenes and describing equipment and authentic WW2 attire really helps to place you into the historic era in which this book is set. I hope to read more from this author and follow Ian Fleming further into his wartime experiences.
