This book is just excellent.
Whether you are a fan of spy novels or World War II stories, you will not find anything better than OP JB. The title stands for "Operation James Bond", and is written 50 years after the events described, because the author was not able to tell the story until all the principle characters involved had died. The book includes certification from Winston Churchill that the story told is in fact true.
The author was a contemporary of Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond stories. He worked with British Intelligence before, during & after World War II.
Operation James Bond had as its goal the smuggling of Martin Borman out of Nazi Berlin at the very moment of the collapse of the Third Reich.
The story is quite incredible, and is very well told. It is up to the reader to determine whether or not the events related are true.

This is a wonderful story of how Martin Bormann was spirited out of Berlin, and on to Britain, in the very last days of the war in Europe More thrilling than any fiction.

There's one thing missing, and that is that in fact, Bormann really won WWII for us, on land at least, by spying for the Soviet Union, via the so-called 'Lucy' ring in Switzerland. It was Bormann, and not any deciphering done at Bletchley Park in Britain, who, amongst other things, won the battle of Kursk for the Soviets..

HASH(0x97e34b94) out of 5 stars Will the real James Bond please stand up ! Dec 26 2010
By Dennis Frampton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
OPJB refers to "Operation James Bond", the subject of this 1996 story which I can't decide whether to call a novel or an historical account. I just don't know if this is a true story or not. The writer's first sentence in the preface to the book states 'I am well aware that many readers will find this story incredible." He was certainly right about that. Creighton writes in the first person and claims to have been an under-cover operator in the secret "M" section of British Military Intelligence during the waning days of World war II. Since the activities of M section and British Military Intelligence are so secret, there is no evidence available even today, to confirm or deny his story, or even to determine whether Creighton himself was indeed a secret agent. But then the number one objective of secret egents is to hide their own identity, so its left to you and I, the readers, to decide whether or not we buy this story. World War II and the activities described here, ended with the surrender of Nazi Germany in May of 1945. Creighton claims that he had been given permission by Winston Churchill to publish his story, and in fact a copy of the letter purported to be from Churchill to Creighton dated October 1954, which stated that permission, is reproduced in the book. However in that letter, Churchill admonishes him to wait until after he, Churchill, is dead. Indeed Creighton waited 40 years and until all of his superiors in the British Intelligence community of WWII, including Churchill, Mountbatten, Ian Fleming and Morton had all passed away. The story concerns the decision of the British government in 1944 to regain possession of the treasures including Art, sculpture, currency and gold, which had been stolen by the Nazi leaders during the war and hidden in secret places all over Europe. That the Nazis had stolen and transported works of art is well established. In fact at the Nuremburg trials, evidence was presented about the two trains loaded with artwork stolen mostly from the Rothschild collections, which Hermann Goering had arranged for transportation to Munich to be stored in the "Fuhrerhaus" of Adolf Hitler. So it was that in January 1945, Christopher Creighton, a young Naval Officer already working under Lord Louis Mountbatten in the Intelligence community, was selected to assemble and direct the operation which the Intelligence Officer Ian Fleming had named "Operation James Bond", an operation to locate and take control of Art and other treasurers which had been stolen by the Nazis. This book then is the telling of that operation. It is a story of daring actions undertaken by Creighton and his small band of men and women, several of whom lost their lives, in the very nerve center of the Nazi organization, at the very moment of its ultimate destruction, but if true, it is also a story of the complicity of the highest level of western military and political leaders in decisions which they knew would cost thousands of lives and in a decision which potentially jeopardized millions. True ? or false ? . . . you will probably end the book, as I did, with a point of view, but regardless of where you come down, it's an interesting read for a winter weekend.

HASH(0x97e34be8) out of 5 stars Censorship....Amazon follows Australia's puppets who today deleted "occupied" from stolen territory in Palestine June 6 2014
By Socrates - Published on
Format: Paperback
I wrote a long and critical review of allied lies and Creighton's serious reports on appalling acts he committed. I made a mistake...I mentioned that the allied lies included its so called culpa' creation of Israel and referred to zionist and financier criminals who controlled many crimes against humanity including WW1 and WW11 and control today's world in entirety.I also spoke of the role of Central bankers, the Bildrbergers, Kuhn Loebe and other executives of mayhem for profit. I spoke of the Reich creating Israel and asocuated FACTS. Amazon seemingly couldn't allow well-researched comment on repressed but established truths to see the light of day. No wonder we have such a corrupt, and confused and misguided world when such fearful oppression greets truth.

Tragically Amazon joins the forelock tugging (which I proved) media in ensuring the truth will not come out. So much for integrity, honour, truth which is not the propaganda sweeteners we are fed since childhood which under Amazon will NOT be ever forthcoming and will be forever censored. Who owns the world's media....? For al the waffle in comments and the denials and skepticism not a single fact has been produced to discredit Creighton's claims which amount to appalling allied war crimes. I exposed numerous crimes in political circles today and in International politics....should I never answer the door again incase it's Mossad calling??

Contemporarily....The celebrations of D-Day must NOT be marred by the truth about Dieppe, nor the American illuminati exposed nor the history of the new order we now suffer under in the prelude to complete and 'globalised' serfdom. Whatever you do Amazon....stay with your pants-down posture in the new order's submissiveness. Never let the truth prevail, that has been a new order requirement since 1740. What a gutless, politically corrupted organisation andhow politically fawning you are. "Ever so umble Mr Pickwick' describes your duplicity well .....Voila

HASH(0x97e3903c) out of 5 stars A brilliant book, eye opening and well written Feb. 3 2014
By Kjirsten Trundle - Published on

This book changed my the way I look at how the world is run. To see life through the limitations of a periscope rather than the wide angled, big screen of reality. What a brutal outlook governing parties take to achieve their final objective "for the betterment of all" and just how little human life means to them in this plan.

To see the correlation between the main character and the fictitious James Bond but without the glorification and romance of this high living 'super spy'.

I love this historical biography - it is my all time new favourite and I have bought two copies so I can lend them to friends.

HASH(0x97e39024) out of 5 stars Virtual Historical Reality Issued by Simon & Scheister June 13 2016
By Marina - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Op JB is pure hogwash. It is a novel masquerading as nonfiction.

Creighton purports to tell the story of Ian Fleming's rescue of Martin Bormann from Germany in order to enable the British to capture treasure looted by the Germans in WW II and entrusted to Bormann's care. Bormann, it seems, decided to defect from Nazi Germany and hand the loot to the British. To accomplish this mission, Fleming, we are told, used a body "double" to replace the real Bormann -- and then killed the unsuspecting double.

Simon & Schuster, the "Virtual Reality" publishers of record, introduces Creighton's wild tale of Bormann's fate with a coy disclaimer, to wit:

"Simon & Schuster issues this book under the assurances by the author, Christopher Creighton, that the story is true. The Publisher has not been able to verify his account by independent research."

Indeed. Simon & Scheister could not verify Creighton's lurid account -- and was in no hurry to do so. Creighton's "historical" account is written in the style of James Bond with the standard murders and naked female she-men. The book includes a few photos of Bormann, his alleged double and a letter allegedly addressed to Creighton endorsing any tale he wishes to tell about his and Fleming's wartime exploits.

Creighton's novel adds to the mound of pseudo historical accounts about the fates of various key Nazis who managed to evade the highly selective Nuremberg trials after WW II. To know Bormann's ultimate fate is to have key insight into who funded and profited from WW II; therefore it is imperative that the Powers That Be obscure Bormann's fate with an avalanche of false historical accounts.

Martin Bormann, indeed, escaped from Germany at the end of WW II -- along with many other Jewish "nazis," such as Mengele, Gehlen, Eichmann...yes, and even Hitler.

What can be believed in this book? Not much, the book has portions that would never make the most sensational James Bond script but at the same time I cannot totally dismiss certain specific aspects of the book. I guess that uncertainty is the essence of a successful disinformation campaign. The author was by his own account a professional liar and murderer so there is little reason to believe that he would not write a book full of lies. Interestingly, the author does not portray himself as typical British Agent without any faults, instead he admits to committing a series of horrendous war crimes and in some strange way these admissions gives him a little more credibility.

I do feel certain that the author was involved in the "cloak and dagger" operations of WWII and had a close and perhaps twisted relationships with Churchill, Morton, Fleming and a few other important figures during the war. Considering Creighton's age at the time that is an extraordinary occurrence. I also believe that Martin Bormann was an asset that was extracted out of Berlin in the closing stages of WWII and Creighton was involved. Creighton claims that a Bormann double was used during the extraction from Berlin and he provides some interesting details that may shed some light on one of histories great mysteries. Erich Kempka testified with certainty that Bormann was killed near the Weidendamm bridge but Bormann was seen later alive and desperate to continue his escape from Berlin. Also, Bormann was described to be wearing a Nazi Party uniform by several members of the break out group while other members described Bormann as wearing some sort of Waffen SS uniform. These strange inconsistencies only added to a contentious issue of whether Bormann was killed in Berlin but a Bormann double might have finally provided the explanation to Kempka's testimony and a few other inconsistencies. Anyway, the book was worth reading but you may feel as though you are just another dupe that the author has played along his merry way. .
