The Strumpet Wind is one of those treasures.
It is set in France during the last months of German occupation after the Americans had landed. The book was written in 1947 or rather published then, only three years after the timing of the novel's focus. Since I do not have the cover or any information I came onto Amazon to see what other readers and writers thought of the book. Sadly I found no reviews.
The story covers a young American soldier who is given the challenge of turning a spy, a Frenchman loyal to the Vichy Government in France who has been entertained into sending radio transmittions of information to the Germans. The young soldier becomes involved with the entire family knowing that a traitor no matter how isolated their information about the war is, thus giving them an aura of innocence really, not knowing the full breadth of the forces involved, will be executed. Even if this same person turns and helps the Allies with the war effort with heroic deeds, the tag traitor wall end in execution of the husband and loss of land and belongings to the wife and three children.
This book caught me up in the story immediately. It is written in a rather de-natured language. It reminds me of the movies of the same time, that portrayed the horrors of the war in a voice of the 'Kid Next Door.' Rather bland but appealing. I learned things I did not know, as the Author has a keen knowledge of the time and place. The confusion and twisted emotions surrounding the ethics of war (are there any?) and the youth of the the soldiers involved could be any war any time. This is however an authentic WWII novel written the Forties voice without the hyperbole's of today, without bad language...without graphic detail, yet the reader knows and understands and is left with "Damn" feeling about war in general which spans all generations and centuries.
A good read, definitely worth it. I also found myself wondering if the author actually knew someone close to the main charactor's situation.
