Undoubtedly the most powerful memoir of any war I have ever read ... Storm of Steel combines the most astonishing literary gifts with absorption with war in every detail. It has German loyalties and a German sensibility, but not a trace of propaganda. It is particular, yet universal ... What Jünger saw and recorded was, to use his own word, 'primordial'. It takes great art to convey that appalling simplicity (Charles Moore Telegraph)
Storm of Steel is what so many books claim to be but are not: a classic account of war (Evening Standard)
Hofmann's interpretation is superb (The Times)
Unique in the literature of this or any other war is its brilliantly vivid conjuration of the immediacy and intensity of battle (Telegraph)
Ernst Jünger, the son of a wealthy chemist, ran away from home to join the Foreign Legion. His father dragged him back, but he returned to military service when he joined the German army on the outbreak of the First World War.Storm of Steel was Jünger's first book, published in 1920. Jünger died in 1998.
