Neal knows his useless info. The group started off as PR to sway US to sell arms and support Britain. Then began to assemble info on manufacturers, then on US military, one of them became "toy boy" of a US representative (female). Been a while since I read book about the whole thing, besides Flemming and Howard, I think two of the others were, or became, well known personages, that most folks wouldn't associate with espionage, especially against US.
Want another bonus? Holywood film fatale and box office smash, invented secret weapon that wasn't used in WW2, US Govt afterwards used it without telling her, patent lapsed and technology is now in wide use, probably every day by you and me. She never got a dime or recognition that some that used her idea did.
Her name, technology, and todays uses?
( Bonus bonus... She did sue somebody but not because of that, she lost. Who'd she sue?)
Why not Sophia Loren as Bond? I dunno, because she didn't have British accent?
But from all that, skipping right over coin, the word is now....Bombshell.
