Whilst there he is challenged by the Head of the Japanese Secret Service to kill Dr. Guntram Shatterhand. Bond realises that Shatterhand is Ernst Stavro Blofeld and sets out on a revenge mission to kill him and his wife, Irma Bunt.

Through the mouths of his characters, Fleming also examines the decline of post-World War II British power and influence, notably in relation to the United States.

For Your Eyes Only

For Your Eyes Only is a collection of short stories by British author Ian Fleming, featuring the fictional British Secret Service agent Commander James Bond. It was first published by Jonathan Cape on 11 April 1960. It marked a change of format for Fleming, who had previously written James Bond stories only as full-length novels.

The collection contains five short stories: “From a View to a Kill”, “For Your Eyes Only”, “Quantum of Solace”, “Risico” and “The Hildebrand Rarity”. Four of the stories were adaptations of plots for a television series that was never filmed while the fifth Fleming had written previously but not published. Fleming undertook some minor experiments with the format, including a story written as an homage to an author he greatly admired, W. Somerset Maugham.

Elements from the stories have been used in a number of the Eon Productions James Bond film series, including the 1981 film, For Your Eyes Only, starring Roger Moore as James Bond. The film used some elements and characters from the short stories “For Your Eyes Only” and “Risico”. “From a View to a Kill” also lent part of its title (but no characters or plot elements) to the fourteenth Bond film, A View to a Kill (1985), while plot elements from “The Hildebrand Rarity” were incorporated in the sixteenth Bond film, Licence to Kill (1989). “Quantum of Solace” was used as the title for the twenty-second Bond film.
