RE: RARA-AVIS: hardboiled war novels

From: John Williams (
Date: 06 Sep 2004

Nigel Balchin's Darkness Falls From The Air is pretty noir come to think of it - a downbeat tale of London during the Blitz written at the time. John Lodwick's Brother Death is a noir novel of the immediate post war period. Patrick Hamilton's very noir Slaves Of Solitude takes place during the war, though in a British boarding house.

Has anyone read Gerald Kersh's war novels?
