Roald Dahl started writing during his time in the Royal Air Force during World War II. However, his first published work, "Shot Down Over Libya," appeared in a magazine called The Saturday Evening Post in 1942. Dahl's career as a children's author began in 1961 with the publication of his book "James and the Giant Peach."
