Ian Fleming gained much of the inspiration for his James Bond novels from his experiences as assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. During this period he founded a special commando spy unit - 30AU - whose task was to seize enemy intelligence from the front line. This book tells the story of this innovative force, which in the last months of the war managed to obtain the entire archive of the German Navy.
