Yesterday, I finished reading a spy novel set in Greece during WWII, called Spies of the Balkans by Alan Furst. His novels in general deal with intelligence operatives in the years before and during the war, and they do a terrific job of scene-setting. The characterization is better than most, as well. I recommend any of his books, this one among them.
