James Bond is known as the intelligent and dashing secret agent that always out-maneuvers the enemy. He's a ladies' man, but still able to kill others without a second thought. Made popular throughout the world, James Bond is an internationally-recognized icon. But he did not just spring out of Ian

Fleming's mind.

No, Bond is based on a real person named Yeo-Thomas, otherwise known as White Rabbit. Yeo-Thomas is a World War II secret agent from Britain. A war hero, his many exploits were later converted into adventures of the fictional James Bond. He reported directly to Winston Churchill in at least one instance, and was tortured by the Gestapo during his military service. In addition to this, he was also held at a concentration camp, but later escaped.
