In his intro to the ARCHER IN HOLLYWOOD collection, Ross Macdonald said that, for him, writing was a continuation of the war. It got me wondering how many hard-boiled writers had been in combat. Of course, in the fifties, nine out of ten males over maybe thirty had been in the army. I was just curious if it was known of how many, specifically, wrote as a way of adjusting to civilian life.
