Biography of British Spy James Bond 007 Part 2

About the famous British spy James Bond, history and biography of 007.



In 1957 he successfully thwarted an elaborate SMERSH plot for his own assassination and followed this coup with the destruction of Dr. No, a German-Chinese scientist who was running an American missile-sabotaging operation under the cover of a Caribbean bird guano business. The following year saw one of Bond's most incredible adventures and the virtual destruction of SMERSH. In that assignment he pitted himself against master criminal Auric Goldfinger, who had devised a plot, backed by SMERSH, to steal all of the gold in Fort Knox.

Having undermined the effectiveness of SMERSH, Bond turned his attention to a new threat, SPECTRE--the Special Executive for Counterintelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion--and its diabolical leader, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

In 1961 Bond sabotaged SPECTRE's attempted blackmail of Western nations with hijacked nuclear devices, in what was then termed Operation Thunderball. Although SPECTRE was stopped, Blofeld escaped, but Bond found and defeated him one year later. This time blofeld was trying to ruin England's economic base by means of biological infestation of crops and livestock. Bond was successful with the help of Marc-Ange Draco, leader of France's counterpart of the Mafia, the Union Corse. Blofeld escaped again, however, and was able to kill Bond's wife of one day, Tracy di Vicenzo, the daughter of Draco.

Bond was completely demoralized after this episode. He lost his Double-0 number and was sent on a diplomatic mission to Japan. Here he uncovered the maniacal Blofeld for the last time. He was keeping a Japanese "suicide garden" on a remote island fortress. Bond destroyed the island and killed Blofeld, but the assignment nearly cost him his life. As it was, he suffered a complete loss of memory and eventually fell into the hands of the Russians, who brainwashed him and sent him back to assassinate the head of the British Secret Service. The plot was foiled, and in 1964 Bond was deprogrammed and sent on his last notable assignment, against freelance assassin Paco "Pistols" Scaramanga--the man with the golden gun.

Although Bond's spectacular adventures contributed much to his reputation, they were not the only factor. He was a high liver and prolific lover of the first order. From his modified 1939 Bentley to his custom-made Morland Special cigarettes with the triple gold rings, he was a man with a discriminating palate and particular tastes. And the women in his life, invariably waifish and willing, had names, as exotic as their life-styles--Pussy Galore, Kissy Suzuki, and Honeychile Rider, to name just a few. But no woman was able to hold him, because he was in essence married to M, the irascible Admiral Sir Miles Messervy, head of the British Secret Service, the man whom Bond claimed "holds a great deal of my affection and all of my loyalty and obedience."

Bond has been retired from the Ministry of Defense since 1965 and continues to reside in his flat off Kings Road in London. But if a threat of sufficient proportions should arise, it is certain that Bond would be reissued his license and would take the field once again as Secret Agent 007.
