How James Bond author Ian Fleming created a movie icon
The world's most famous spy was born from an insider's knowledge of the British intelligence services and a fondness for women, alcohol, and gambling. With the war over, Fleming worked as foreign manager for The Sunday Times, overseeing the paper's foreign correspondents as he had once overseen British agents. Fleming finally began writing his spy novel at GoldenEye, the author's vacation home in Jamaica, early in 1952. He was encouraged to do so by the fact that his fiancée and longtime lover, Ann, was pregnant and Fleming knew he would need money to support his family.
Craig appeared in the Royal Navy's working uniform, wearing the three gold bars on the shoulder that denotes a commander's rank and matches the fictional rank of his character. Craig, in, said "I am truly privileged and honored."

"Daniel Craig is well known for being Commander Bond for the last fifteen years - a Naval officer who keeps Britain safe through missions across the globe," Radakin said in a statement. "That's what the real Royal Navy does every day."
