With his stirring, rapturous first novel--originally published in
1956 --James 'salter established himself as the most electrifying
prose stylist since Hemingway. Four decades later, it is clear that he
also fashioned the most enduring fiction ever about aerial
Captain Cleve Connell arrives in Korea with a single
goal :to become an ace, one of that elite fraternity of jet pilots who
have downed five MIGs. But as his fellow airmen rack up kill after
kill--sometimes under dubious circumstances--Cleve's luck runs bad.
Other pilots question his guts.
Cleve comes to question himself. And then in one icy instant
40,000 feet above the Yalu River, his luck changes forever. Filled
with courage and despair, eerie beauty and corrosive rivalry, The
Hunters is a landmark in the literature of war.
