COONTS, Stephen. The Intruders. First edition. New York : Pocket Books, (1994). Pp. (8), 1-344. Blue cloth spine with light blue paper covered boards."1973. The skies over Vietnam have finally gone silent. America has pulled out, the war is over. But for Lieutenant Jake Grafton, USN, fresh from two combat cruises and a harrowing shoot-down over Laos, the personal battle i s just beginning. His country has not welcomed him home with open arms, butwith closed minds and closed fists. When his girlfriend's father called hi m a murderer, Jake walked away. But when a stranger in a bar challenged hishonor, the man was not so lucky - the guy landed in the hospital. Jake lan ded in jail. And Grafton's shore-duty commander, who bailed him out, has devised the perfect punishment for his ace flight instructor: and eight-monthcruise on the aircraft carrier Columbia teaching jarheads - Marines - the nuances of carrier aviation. Flying missions over Vietnam was a living hell; now, as a Navy man working side by side with Marines who have no carrier aviation experience, Grafton's about to discover another world of fresh hell....The Intruders captures as never before the raw fear and exhilaration of military aviation. It is the extraordinary story of peacetime warriors who are never truly at peace: men who run on instinct and adrenaline, whose only target is the horizon and whose only goals are excellence - and survival." -- from dust jacket.
