5.0 out of 5 stars The Name is Fleming, Ian Fleming 17 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Damian Stevenson's "The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Parsifal" follows up his first "Fleming" novel, "Operation Armada" with a twist. As the Allies are grinding towards victory in World War II, the British government learns of a plot by a cabal of German officers and industrialists to overthrow Hitler and replace him with a saner, more competent leader - and potentially prolong the war indefinitely. So, Ian Fleming, agent 17F, is dispatched on the strangest mission he could imagine: to save the life of the Fuhrer.

The book takes Fleming all across Europe, and eventually to a showdown in the heart of Africa as he attempts to infiltrate "Parsifal," the group that seeks to create a new and even deadlier fourth reich. Stevenson describes everything in loving detail, capturing the feel of the James Bond novels while at the same time laying the groundwork for his fictional Fleming to become their creator once the war is over.

Everything you'd expect in a Bond novel is here: girls, gadgets, Bondian quips, exotic locations and a memorable adversary. It's a lot of fun, and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars 17F is back and he's better than ever! 17 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was my first exposure to Bond creator, Commander Ian Fleming of the Naval Intelligence Department. It becomes obvious that much of 007's adventures were based on Fleming's exploits. Stevenson's tireless research on the subject is evident in the books tiniest of details.

Set in WWII Britain, Agent 17F is sent on an assignment that would save Hitler from an assassination! Save Hitler? Why in the hell would the Brits want to save Hitler? Because those plotting to take his place plan to make peace with Russia and a new and even more powerful Forth Reich would emerge. The complete and utter invasion of Europe should these two mega-forces unite would be inevitable. At least with Hitler in charge the Brits have a chance to win the war.

Stevenson has a very definitive and concise writing style. He does not add fluff where it does not belong. This is WWII Europe after all. While reading the book you almost get the sense that he was there. His ability to transport you back to 1945 with his descriptive imagery is second to none. I admit to not being a big follower of Bond or WWII movies but I could not put this one down. It's an edgy, fast-paced, action-packed thriller that is a must read for any Bond fan. This would make an awesome movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW 17 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I stepped WAY out of my normal genre on this one, but I'm so glad that I did, because now I want to see the movie.
Spies, action, Nazis, and an assassination plot come together in this well-written, fast-paced story.
Pick this one up today.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class Historical Fiction 14 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Another delightful entry in `The Ian Fleming Files' series. This one works as a breezy entertainment but also has a lot on its mind. Biographical details are peppered throughout the narrative but never get in the way of the plot which moves fast but always remains credible. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another kick-ass 17F adventure! 13 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a worthy follow-up to "Operation Armada." "Operation Parsifal" is like the big budget sequel -- with the hero growing into bigger responsibilities; with raised stakes, and more exotic locales.

"Operation Parsifal" is set in the waning days of World War II and presents an interesting scenario where the hero has to try to SAVE Hitler's life. Crazy, huh? Trust me, you'll want to find out exactly why he has to save the horrible dictator's life!

This book is like a James Bond story set within a historical reality. Readers who enjoy historical thrillers will love this book. I recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 16 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whether you're a fan of James Bond or Ian Fleming or just love a well-written thriller, this book is definitely a 'must read'.
Set during the second world war, the novel follows the exploits of Ian Fleming as he battles against situation and foe in an attempt to save the life of Hitler.
The action is fast-paced and the attention to detail is exquisite as the reader is led through a plot which feels like a cross between a Bond film script and a real Ian Fleming novel.
It is easy to see where Ian Fleming got his ideas for the adventures of his world famous hero and Damian Stevenson is like the master himself as he weaves his tales of espionage across continents and in dangerous situations equal to any best-selling thriller novel of past or present.
A wonderful winner in the excitement stakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME THRILLER 13 Sep 2013
By Kuda
Format:Kindle Edition
A great follow up to `Operation Armada.' Ian Fleming voyages around the world seducing dangerous women and fighting Nazis. Love it! I really enjoyed the chapter in the submarine and the Cairo sequence. The ending was poignant and has me hooked for `Operation Uncle Sam.' This series is recommended for anyone who loves a good spy thriller. It's like `Raiders of the Lost Ark' meets the James Bond books. Very well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel to `Operation Armada' 13 Sep 2013
By james
Format:Kindle Edition
It's five years after the first `Ian Fleming Files' adventure (`The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada') and 17F has been called into action in the final stages of the war. Hitler is destroying himself and Germany faces imminent defeat. Only a secret society of anti-Hitlerian Nazis named Parsifal have other plans. They want to assassinate the Fuhrer and replace him with Rommel. Britain's Naval Intelligence dispatches Ian Fleming to Cairo to meet with Peter Ugarte, Parsifal's treasurer who has defected and absconded with the head of Parsifal's fiancee... It's a terrific set-up and the rest of the plot is a whirlwind ride. I think this book marks an improvement on `Operation Armada.' The action has been toned down to be more credible and the characterizations have more depth. Ian Fleming feels fully dimensional and there's a lot more going on than just fights with Nazis and bedding beauties (tho there's plenty of that too!). `The Ian Fleming Files' is shaping up to be a meaty series, one readers can really sink their teeth into. I was very impressed with the overall writing. A solid entertainment up there with the best spy and World War 2 fiction. Recommended to fans of Daniel Silva, Laura Hillenbrand and of course Ian Fleming!
