Review:

"The contemporary writer most admired and envied by other writers. . . . He can . . . break your heart with a sentence."
--Washington Post Book World

"Anyone under forty may not appreciate how profoundly Salter influenced my generation. [He] created the finest work ever to appear in print--ever--about men who fly and fight." --Robert F. Dorr, author of F-86 Sabre

Darkly romantic. . .beautifully composed. . .a brilliant war novel." --Chicago Tribune
