The Hunters, Paperback

The Hunters Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



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, James Salter's luminous first novel is a landmark masterpiece in the literature of war.
