Description

  • Penguin Books
  • The memoir widely viewed as the best account ever written of fighting in WW1

    A memoir of astonishing power, savagery, and ashen lyricism, Storm of Steel illuminates not only the horrors but also
    the fascination of total war, seen through the eyes of an ordinary German soldier. Young, tough, patriotic, but also
    disturbingly self-aware, Jünger exulted in the Great War, which he saw not just as a great national conflict but—more
    importantly—as a unique personal struggle. Leading raiding parties, defending trenches against murderous British
    incursions, simply enduring as shells tore his comrades apart, Jünger kept testing himself, braced for the death that
    will mark his failure. Published shortly after the war’s end, Storm of Steel was a worldwide bestseller and can now be
    rediscovered through Michael Hofmann’s brilliant new translation.
