From "Russia with Love" has nothing to do with the Cold War. None of the Bond books did. The enemy was SPECTRE not the Soviets or Chinese. Fleming did it that way on purpose. The Soviets and The West cooperated to fight SPECTRE.

POLL DESCRIPTION
What would you recommend as the best Cold War fiction for wargamers? I am surprised how many of the books are no longer available, even in digital format, given how popular this type of fiction was back in the day.
