Night Soldiers - Atmospheric and Authentic

Night Soldiers - Alan Furst

Alan Furst is an elegant writer.  Despite jumping around Europe and flashing back and forth between several characters, the narrative never lost my interest.  I believe Night Soldiers is one of the first in a series of many, excellent espionage books, written by Alan Furst, set leading up to and during the second world war.  The feeling of authenticity and historical detail is fantastic.  I have read a few of his more recent books and am now starting back at the beginning to read them in order.
