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.
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..

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
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.
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.
Read: "Hitler in Argentina" by Harry Cooper and watch "Jewish Nazis Pt 1" (rapeofjustice channel) on youtube.
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. .
