TIL Roald Dahl (author of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’)was a real life James Bond who seduced women to gain intelligence during WWII.(r/todayilearned)
Dahl’s grandson here, can sort of confirm.
There’s a book about it called “The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Washington” which came out a couple of years ago, has a couple of inaccuracies but is quite fun.
This is a great time to publish this on reddit as Roald Dahl Day was last Friday! Feel free to AMA as well.
EDIT: Plan is to do an IAMA with one of my aunts when I get a chance soon enough, be ready reddit.
EDIT 2: Current Plan is Christmas
