RARA-AVIS: hardboiled war novels

Anybody know good, unknown World War II books? In the hardboiled frame of mind... gold medal, dirty dozen, action adventure, you know the drill. There's been talk of SF noir and hardboiled westerns, but war fiction should have something comparable as well.

I read McAuliffe's OF ALL THE BLOODY CHEEK (which is absolutely marvelous stuff, and marginally suitable for this query), and am thinking of Sam Fuller's great films (and one novel, BIG RED ONE), but otherwise I'm drawing a blank... it seems a somewhat uncharted territory.
