The Schloss Tambach in Bavaria, the ancestral home of the counts of Ortenburg, was the site of the Kriegsmarine’s naval archives, which were captured by British intelligence officers in May 1945. Study of the material resulted in a report circulated by the Admiralty in June 1945 by Naval Intelligence Division (NID) 24 that identified technical assistance given to Japan by the Nazis. BATISTA, FULGENCIO. The removal of the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista in January 1960 by Fidel Castro was considered a foreign policy disaster by President Dwight D.

This was a topic he would later return to in The Man with the Golden Gun, in which Cuban saboteurs attempt to destroy the Jamaican sugar crop so as to boost their own island’s export of the same commodity. With Fleming’s skillful pen, James Bond’s name has become synonymous with effortless good taste and instinctive knowledge of what is best, even if his treatment and opinions of women, like the author himself, were far from politically correct, even when the books were published. Bond dresses with care, travels with experience, and exudes the confidence that is instantly recognized by sommeliers, maîtres d’hotel, and bartenders the world over.

Big in Jamaica, Fleming mentioned neither MI5 or the local Special Branch, which was then led by British personnel seconded from London. One explanation for the error was the author’s wish to avoid providing too much authentic information on the security apparatus where he lived, perhaps running the risk of alienating MI5 and the Jamaican police, neither of which sought attention and tended to operate away from public scrutiny. The fact that Fleming knew that genuine concern had been expressed about Communist influence over the local trade union movement suggests that he was quite well informed about the local Jamaican security scene.
