While training at a camp in Canada (Camp X), the Americans ask Fleming to use his talents to write a blueprint for a Central Intelligence Agency. On his return to London, Fleming persuades Godfrey to form the 30 Assault Unit - a group of the toughest soldiers prepared to play dirty, with Fleming serving as commanding officer. He believes the new unit of Intelligence Commandos is the key to beating the Nazis. Meanwhile, Fleming continues his relationship with Ann, but refuses to consider taking it to the next level, while Rothermere makes it clear he intends to win her over once and for all.

Despite the disclaimer that "Some names, paces and incidents are fictitious ...", the scene of Fleming and Monday looking amongst a room of bodies for one to play 'Major Martin' is a major exaggeration. It is widely accepted that the body of 'Major Martin' was not selected from the casualties from sinking of HMS Dasher, which is what this scene purports to show. See more
