really liked it

This book was a pleasant surprise. I read it after reading an obituary of the author, who died last year. The Hunters is a clearly written story about fighter pilots in Korea, their skills and insecurities, and the desire to become an "ace" who has shot down five enemy planes.

The main character is an experienced pilot, considered one of the best, who is surpassed by a callow jet jockey until he gets his moment. It's a great read and a revealing look at the world of pilots at war.
