LoveReading Says

Skilfully plotted against the events of history with beautifully observed characters, this dynamic and powerful novel focuses on the 1942 Dieppe Raid. The Spoils of War Collection is one of my favourites, it isn’t in chronological order and the focus isn’t always the same characters, so calling it a collection is perfect. Knowing that the events of the war took place, then stepping into such a well-written story heightens emotions. I knew what happened in the Dieppe Raid, yet felt as though I was reading about it for the first time. As usual we meet a number of characters (Schultz is a particular favourite of mine). We see them in epic and intimate moments, the writing ensures it is all too easy to believe the words that come out of their mouths and their behaviour. Author Graham Hurley successfully breaks down the barriers between good and evil, and even right and wrong, proving humanity and individuals more than capable of all actions, sometimes within breaths of each other. He weaves fact and fiction into the most incredibly taut story, and there were points when I wanted to read through my fingers. This joins the collection of stories that we want to shout about as a LoveReading Star Book, and Book of the Month. The Blood of Others brilliantly slips into the Spoils of War Collection, it has must-read stamped all over it.
