London, Apr 14 (ANI): The memoir of a late British war hero has revealed the amorous sex life he led, a sex pact he made with actress Ava Gardner, and how he inspired the creation of James Bond, the British spy.

Geoffrey Gordon-Creed, a handsome major in the British Army, had been highly decorated, awarded a Military Cross and a Distinguished Service Order for his bravery, the Daily Mail reported.

But besides his medals, he also made numerous conquests of the other sort in bedrooms across Europe.

He died in South Carolina in 2002 but his memoirs have now been published and form the basis of a new biography, written by former soldier Roger Field.

The biography describes candidly the horrors of the vicious guerrilla war he fought in the Greek mountains, as well as his many amorous escapades.

He remained irresistible to women, and among his many lovers was Gardner, whom he met when she was filming in Kenya in 1952.

He was 32 and ruggedly handsome, she was 30 and said to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

After some mutual flirting she made him a proposition: she would become his lover for a week. After that he would never hear from her again.

Gordon-Creed agreed and for eight days she was, he remembered fondly, “the perfect lover and courtesan”.

In 1957, Gordon-Creed moved to Jamaica where he became friends with Ian Fleming. He claimed that he partly inspired Fleming’s character, the ruthless, womanising 007.

‘Rogue Male: Death And Seduction Behind Enemy Lines With Mister Major Geoff’ by Roger Field and Geoffrey Gordon-Creed is published this week by Hodder and Stoughton at 18.99 pounds. (ANI)
