Ian Lancaster Fleming (English Ian Lancaster Fleming ) English writer, diplomat, intelligence officer. $$ author-portrait-20667-ian-fleming2.jpg $$ $$ author-portrait-20667-ian_fleming.png $$ Ian Fleming was born in Lancaster on May 28, 1908 into a wealthy aristocratic family of Member of Parliament Valentine Fleming and Evelyn St. Croix -Fleming (née Rose). Ian`s father, who died in 1914 in the Battle of the Somme, was a friend of W. Churchill. Fleming was raised at the privileged Eton College, where he won Victor Ludorum (winner of the games) for two consecutive years, an achievement that has only been repeated once since. He studied at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, then continued his education at the universities of Munich and Geneva, where he studied German and French. Later he also learned Russian. Fleming prepared himself for a career as a diplomat, but did not pass the entrance examination at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and, under the patronage of his family, received a correspondent position at Reuters in 1929. As a special correspondent for the agency, he was sent to Moscow in 1933 to cover the trial of employees of the Metropolitan Vickers company, accused of espionage and sabotage. In the same year, Fleming accepted an offer to become a partner in a banking company and left Reuters. But 5 years later, in 1938, Fleming again as a correspondent (now the Times newspaper) visited Moscow with a trade delegation headed by the Minister of Foreign Trade in the government of N. Chamberlain. After the outbreak of World War II, Fleming, drafted into military service, took up the post of Assistant Director of the Navy`s Secret Service, Admiral J. Godfrey. He oversees a number of covert operations, supervises the release of prisoners of war in Norway, locates German V-missiles, and provides intelligence for the Allied landing in Italy. According to one of the versions, which became known in 1997, Fleming allegedly directly developed and took part in the operation to kidnap Martin Bormann on May 1, 1945. The operation was codenamed "James Bond". In 1945 he took up the position of foreign affairs manager for Kemsley Newspapers. At this time, he decides to build a house in Jamaica, which he dubbed "Golden Eye" after the title of Carson McCullers` novel "Reflection in the Golden Eye." Here he was in 1952 and wrote his first book "Casino Royale". In the same year, Fleming married Anna Rothermer. He wrote not only novels. He penned the books Diamond Dealers and Scary Cities, as well as the classic children`s story Chitty Chitty - Bang Bang, which was turned into a multimillion dollar musical by producer Albert R. Broccoli and released by United Artists. In 1946 Fleming retired and until 1959 headed the foreign department of the Kemsley newspaper trust. $$ author-portrait-20667-ian-fleming.jpg $$ At Ian Fleming`s home in Oracabesse, one of his "bibles" was the "Birds of the Western Indies" handbook, written by American ornithologist James Bond. Flemming explains: “I believed that my secret agent should be as anonymous as possible as a person. And then it dawned on me that this name - short, unromantic and at the same time courageous - is exactly what I need. " Five words spoken in all languages ​​by the most famous secret agent of all time, the man with the light hand of which Aston Martin, Walter PPK and a cocktail vodka with Martini (shake, but not stir) - entered every home. Its creator was Ian Fleming. –MY BOOKS mark the area below the solar plexus and above the thigh. –I DO NOT WRITE by a template. I do not have any kind of order within the basic concepts - sex, money, fast cars, luxury life, and so on. –I WRITE for warm-blooded heterosexuals on trains, airplanes and beds. –MY STORIES are fantastic, although often based on true stories. They are beyond the probable, but I think they are not beyond the possible.  Bond Books : In order of publication, James Bond`s adventures are 14 books. (Year of first publication in the United Kingdom): 1953 - Casino Royale; 1954 - Live and Let Die. 1955 - "Moonraker". 1956 - Diamonds Are Forever. 1957 - From Russia with Love. 1958 - "Doctor No". 1959 - Goldfinger. 1960 - For Your Eyes Only. 1961 - Operation Fireball / Operation Thunder 1962 - The Spy Who Loved Me. 1963 - "On Her Majesty`s Secret Service." 1964 - You Only Live Twice. 1965 - The Man with the Golden Gun. 1966 - Octopus. Short stories: 1960 - "A View of a Murder", "A Share of Consolation", "Risiko", "Hildebrand`s Rarity" - entered into "For Your Eyes Only" 1966 - "Living Lights" and "Lady`s Own" - entered the "Octopussy". Almost all of Fleming`s novels were filmed and brought fame not only to the writer, but also to many actors. The main character, agent 007 (two digits 0 give the right to kill), quickly won the love of the public. Clever, charming, tough and invariably successful in achieving his goals, Bond in all Bond novels enters, like a fairytale hero, into a mortal battle with Evil on the side of Good and Justice, personifying such concepts as "duty" and "loyalty" (translation of the word " Bond "- Commitment). Despite the conventionality and some fantastic nature of events and situations, the author`s accuracy in describing the details, setting and scene of action, and a slight irony in relation to the hero and himself, give a special appeal to the narration. As if out of a sense of protest against criticism of being the author of one hero, Fleming writes a travel book and a story for children. However, for millions of readers, Ian Fleming remains the author of the irresistible James Bond novels. Writer and diplomat Ian Fleming died on August 12, 64 at the age of 52 in Canterbury from a heart attack while playing golf. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ian Fleming, on April 17, 2008, an exhibition entitled "For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming and James Bond" opened at the Imperial War Museum in London. The curators of the exhibition noted that, despite all their efforts, they failed to separate the author from his hero, truth and fiction were so closely intertwined in the life of the intelligence officer and writer Ian Fleming.
