Juenger adapted entries from his war diary (See "Storm of Steel" for a much fuller account) relating to a week or so that he spent along one stretch of the Western Front in 1918 (after the German Spring Offensive) along with later recollections of events and his postwar thoughts on the significance of the war. The result is not a straight-forward description of his war experience. Juenger's radical right philosophy comes through at multiple points; in his considerations of liberalis...more

I'll admit right off the bat I am a "Storm of Steel" guy. I read it first and was sucked right in. I picked this book up thinking it would prove more of the same but was quite mistaken. I believe the book has merit in that it explores a multitude of experiences and ideas he had perculating in his head. His ideas on the future warrior and the new wave of military hardware are rather uncanny and farseeing.

Junger was a soldier in the Imperial German Army serving during most of the WWI. In this work, Junger expands upon his journal entries towards the end of the war by presenting his own reflections.

A fascinating memoir by a German soldier serving in the trenches in 1918 that is particularly revealing of Juenger's radical right philosophy, his social Darwinist vision of war, his fervent nationalism, and in his constant musings about a particular model of warrior heroism.

German writer. In addition to his many novels, he is well known for Storm of Steel, an account of his experience during the First World War.

Many regard him as one of Germany's greatest modern writers and a hero of the conservative revolutionary movement following World War I. Others dismiss him as a militarist or reactionary.
