Here's my thesis that Ian Fleming's spy novels were part of a psych war operation against the Russians as a direct result of the betrayals of the Cambridge Spy ring. BK
CAMBRIDGE SPY RING & 007 -

A most interesting read, Bill. Very publishable.
Why did Ian Fleming choose the name 'James Bond'?
The official story is that Fleming believed the name to be "dull and unassuming," and was lifted from the author of the book he just happened to have at his breakfast table. In reality, he considered Bond's book his "Bible."
I will answer more fully in the thead JS started on Fleming, and allow this thread to stay on topic with the Cambridge Spy Ring, and I hope Ian has a chance to respond.
