Présentation de l'éditeur

Before James Bond there was Commander Ian Fleming or ‘17F’ as he was known during World War 2 when the young British author served as an intelligence officer in Great Britain’s Naval Intelligence Department.

In his startling debut novel, Ian Fleming scholar Damian Stevenson has crafted the ultimate origin story for one of popular culture’s most beloved icons. Everything that inspired the James Bond books is here: the suave and ruthless central character, his demanding boss, a bevy of beautiful femme fatales, formidable villains bent on world domination, their homicidal henchmen, exotic locations, crackling wit and all the cool cars, guns, gadgets and hardware one would expect in a story about the author of 'Casino Royale,' 'Live and Let Die,' 'Moonraker,' 'The Spy Who Loved Me,' 'Diamonds Are Forever,' 'Goldfinger,' 'On Her Majesty’s Secret Service' and many other timeless 007 adventures.

The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada is all the more powerful for being rooted in historical reality. The narrative is rife with factual details and has been lauded by Bond fans for the new insight it has brought into the creation of the world’s most famous fictional spy. Stevenson takes us inside Ian Fleming's mind as he executes the dangerous missions that inspired his best selling books.

Damian Stevenson researched his novel for six years, interviewing hundreds of people connected to Ian Fleming’s life and reading everything ever written about him. The result is an instant classic that will appeal to Bond fans and lovers of good writing everywhere.

‘OPERATION ARMADA’ MISSION BRIEF

June 14, 1940. Naval Intelligence operative Commander Ian Fleming a.k.a. ‘17F’ is parachuted into occupied France with two million pounds in gold. His mission: to negotiate the purchase of sixty battleships from the renegade head of France’s Navy, the mysterious and charismatic World War I legend Admiral Darlan. Fleming is assisted in his quest by the French Resistance led by the beautiful saboteur Denise Astier. Plans go awry and 17F is forced to improvise when German Army Group B, led by the sadistic General Bock, makes a run for Admiral Darlan’s ships. Hitler needs France's battle-cruisers and destroyers to mount ‘Operation Sealion,’ his planned invasion of Great Britain. Ian Fleming has four days to get to Darlan before the French fleet is annihilated by the Royal Navy. With General Bock on his heels, and a traitor close to home, 17F finds himself in a race with the biggest stakes imaginable.

‘Operation Armada’ is the first in a series of ‘The Ian Fleming Files’ stories. Read Book 2, 'Operation Parsifal.'

"The story has everything that you would expect from a James Bond story: thrilling action scenes, gadgets, women and cars."
- Christoph Fischer, Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely loved it! 6 novembre 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This was such an awesome read. Wonderfully descriptive writing, by descriptive I don't mean hundreds of pointless words I mean, beautifully crafted and to the point, not a wasted word in sight.

It follows the tale of Ian Fleming - a young intelligence officer during World War II. The novel starts at a frenetic pace and never lets up until the very last page, very James Bondish!

I'm not usually one who likes historical novels, but this one just didn't read like a 'boring history retelling of factual events' at all.

Fleming is sent, laden with gold, to France with a tempting offer for the commander of the French navy. The question is whether Fleming will get there before the devious commander sells out to the Germans. Really don't want to say more except read it for yourself to see what happens next.

Twists and turns ensue that usually feature in a Bond movie. If you love great thrillers you'd be foolish to miss out on this one.

The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada by Damian Stevenson is a very entertaining read.

I enjoyed this espionage thriller that was like a Bond movie but filled with interesting historical details.

The story is never dull and there's a lot of funny moments. An interesting portrayal of Europe at the start of World War 2. I loved the French resistance character. The ending was great.

I read this after reading and really enjoying The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Parsifal (A World War 2 Thriller) both or excellent reads and I was not disappointed.

5 stars and highly recommended. I can't wait for more books from the author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN 23 octobre 2013
Format:Format Kindle
Phenomenal. I am a huge James Bond fan and a student of World War 2. Some reviews have pointed out anachronisms but I didn't find any. I think these reviewers don't really know the subject. One reviewer said this was a `rip off' of early James Bond movies. Which Bond movie is set in World War Two and centers on the negotiation of France's navy?? There isn't anything ripped off here. I found this book to be beautifully written and utterly original. Author Stevenson's one-liners sound like something Bond might say but they are all original jokes (I laughed out loud at several, especially the scene at the `Ministry of Supply' chapter which was a wicked parody of the `Q' scenes) and every line is fresh and clever. I think some reviewers didn't really get it - this is a sly, tongue in cheek parody of Bond while also being a historical novel that holds up on its own. I loved the Nazi characterizations. It's so easy to fall into cartoon or stereotype but General Bock and Captain Speer read like fully dimensional individuals. The descriptions of the scenery and characters are outstanding. The prose is eminently readable - smart and evocative, without the use of flower language or obvious metaphors. Here's a typical example from the memorable chapter one sortie seeking the French fleet's hiding place:

"Cotton was in his element, hotdogging around the towering funnels of the epic Strasbourg, careful to avoid the swivel guns of her deck and water line as he bobbed and weaved, windmilling and snapping outrageous half turns before rotating 360 degrees and ascending skyward with a barnstorming flourish. Gunners scrambled to man the skyscraper's 3.5 inch howitzers and its four barrel heavy machine-guns.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant 'historic' take on Bond 16 octobre 2013
Format:Format Kindle
"The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada" by Damian Stevenson is based on a simple but brilliant idea: To use the creator of the James Bond series and make him the hero in his own James-Bond-style adventure.
Set in 1940 it shows Fleming as a Naval commander who is on a secret mission in France regarding the French Navy.
As Fleming used to be an navy officer in real life this has an excellent real feel to it, an idea so simple and genius, you wonder why nobody has thought of doing it before Many have written James-Bond style books, but few have thought of going to the root of the creation itself.
Very authentically written the story has everything that you would expect from a James Bond story: thrilling action scenes, gadgets, women and cars.
I am a big fan of history and absolutely loved the idea of bringing Bond into the past rather than the future. For me James Bond is a cult figure and I find that the recent film instalments with the ever increasing pyrotechnics and technology advances take the fun out of the original idea.
Stevenson has done a fantastic job at extracting the essence of Bond and choosing an excellent setting for his novel.
I hate to use this phrase in reviews but I really am looking forward to a series of these books.

I was offered an ARC (advanced reader copy) in return for an accurate review. Without a doubt... a MUST for any Bond fan! The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada by Damian Stevenson is fantastic. The book has intelligent detail to history and complete with fun characters throughout. Naval intelligence, Commander Fleming, 1940 and World War 2... what more could you ask for?
