Description
Enlisting at the age of 19 on the day that Germany declared war in 1914 and serving to its end, Ernst Jünger produced this astonishing memoir in 1920, illuminating the horrors and also the compelling fascination of total war, through the eyes of a regular German soldier. Young, tough, patriotic, yet remarkably self-aware, Jünger saw World War I not just as a great national conflict but also as his personal struggle with life at the most primordial level. The book has influenced numerous writers, including Jorge Luis Borges, Bertolt Brecht, and André Gide, who wrote that Storm of Steel "is without question the finest book on war that I know: utterly honest, truthful, in good faith." This new translation by Michael Hofmann "retains all the coruscating vitality of the original," said Niall Ferguson. "To read this extraordinary book is to gain unique insight into the compelling nature of organized, industrial violence."
