Read about Camp X, the training camp for OSS (pre CIA) agents, training there was 1 month in duration. Ian Flemming was trained there and it's claimed he based James Bond on Sir William Stephenson whom he met there.
This story has often been repeated, but it is of dubious nature. Camp X was located near Oshawa, Ontario (Canada) and there's practically nothing left of it now (a shame really). If I recall correctly Fleming never actually trained there but visited the camp once and tried his hand at one of the exercises. It's said it scared the shit out of him and certainly left quite an impression.
