Description:

A memoir of astonishing power, savagery, and ashen lyricism, Storm of Steelilluminates 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, Jnger exulted in the Great War, which he saw not just as a great national conflict butmore importantlyas a unique personal struggle. Leading raiding parties, defending trenches against murderous British incursions, simply enduring as shells tore his comrades apart, Jnger kept testing himself, braced for the death that will mark his failure. Published shortly after the wars end, Storm of Steelwas a worldwide bestseller and can now be rediscovered through Michael Hofmanns brilliant new translation.
