Storm of Steel
Imported from USA
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.
