    As earlier reported by CommanderBond.net, this latest book by Cabell takes an indepth look at James Bond creator Ian Fleming and his role with the 30AU (30 Assault Unit)—a unit he set up during World War II in 1942.

    The book follows the release of last year’s Ian Fleming’s Secret War (also by Cabell), which focused on the activities of Fleming and his role with the 30AU—a unit he set up during World War II in 1942, while he served as the personal assistant to the director of naval intelligence. It’s goal was to undertake top secret intelligence-gathering missions, going in before Allied troops to make sure vital information was not destroyed.

    Cabell has said that the unit ultimately served as inspiration for the creation of the 007 character.

    The History of 30 Assault Unit: Ian Fleming’s Red Indians is published in hardback by Pen & Sword Military. Retailing for £19.99, it can currently be ordered online at a discounted price:
