After leaving Eton, Ian Fleming spent some time in the Austrian Tyrol at Kitzb├╝hel and went on to study in Munich and Geneva. He had briefly attended the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst which he did not enjoy.

He later worked at Reuters. This was a very enjoyable and successful period and he particularly relished covering a notorious espionage trial in Russia.

Ian Fleming's first biographer, John Pearson, has identified 15 January 1952 as the "birth date" of James Bond and reports that CASINO ROYALE was finished on the 18th of March.
