Dahl's superiors told him how crucial his role was and reminded him how he was very literally "Doing it for England." Considering that at this point Dahl was already a war hero for his bravery in the RAF, we have to wonder what the hell this woman was doing to the poor guy that was worse than torture.
Oh yeah, we're wondering hard.
It wasn't all just sexy espionage and cuckoldry, though. In 1941, Franklin Roosevelt gave a speech claiming he had a map of South America stolen from the Nazis that showed that they were not going to stop with just taking Europe and that America needed to get into the war. A lot of FDR detractors claimed he had made that map up, but they were half wrong: The map was a fake, but FDR didn't know that. The map was a forgery thought up by the Irregulars, who slipped it to American intelligence and hoped it would finally convince Americans to get fighting.
The U.K. only pretends to be friends with us, as all-out confrontation isn't polite.
Even after the Japanese cordially invited the U.S. to join the war by running planes into Pearl Harbor, most of the Irregulars stayed in the U.S. and continued spying because, hey, why not? They maintained jobs in the celebrity sector, and Roald Dahl was even invited to dinner at the White House by Eleanor Roosevelt herself because her grandchildren were fans of his books.
"You want to meet them? You must be joking, sir."
At this point, FDR not only knew about the forged map that made him look like an asshole, but he also knew Dahl's preferred method for espionage involved using married women's vaginas as periscopes. During the dinner, FDR casually commented, "I have had a very interesting cable from Winston," which was his way of pointing out he knew Dahl was a spy. There's no documentation of what followed, but we can assume it was probably Dahl sheepishly crawling out from under Eleanor's dress.
Jacopo della Quercia is also the proud author of "Go @#$% Yourself!" - An Ungentlemanly Disagreement, a book that was 99% written with the Wall Street Protests in mind.
