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.Hide synopsis

I read this book for my book club. It is about fighter pilots during the Korean War. I usually don't read war books, but I'm glad that I read this one.
I learned a lot, even though this was fiction. The characters were nicely drawn. I would recommend it to anyone.
