The Blue Max

(The first book in the Blue Max series)
A novel by

Bruno Stachel is a nobody, a newly recruited junior officer in a First World War German combat squadron. But he is determined not to remain a nobody for long. He has his sights on the Blue Max - the most coveted of all German decorations - and he will do anything to get it. From the very moment he shoots down his first plane, everything he does is aimed in that direction: bedding his commander's wife, courting publicity at every turn, even arranging the deaths of his competitors... Jack D. Hunter's novel is a brilliant study of a pilot tortured by his naked ambition. A classic of war literature, it was also made into a Hollywood movie, starring George Peppard, James Mason and Ursula Andress.
