STORM OF STEEL is a war story which glorifies the heroism of the soldiers, while unflinchingly describing the brutality and horror of trench warfare. Written in a startlingly brilliant and starkly original style, this book challenges our perceptions of the war through its portrayal of the experience of ordinary German soldiers. STORM OF STEEL has a reasonable claim to be one of the 20th century's greatest--and most disturbing--memoirs.

Review:

"Ernst Jünger is unarguably an original..." -- Telegraph, August 24, 2003 (by Tibor Fischer)

"This is unquestionably one of the most striking accounts of the First World War..." -- Evening Standard, August 18, 2003 (by Richard Holmes)

"What raises Jünger to the level of epic is the grandeur of the prose, which is sublime but never sentimental." -- Telegraph, August 23, 2003 (by Daniel Johnson)

Synopsis:

Ernst Junger served in the German front line, fighting both the British and the French for most of World War I. Young, tough, patriotic but also disturbingly self-aware, he exulted in the war, which he saw not just as a great national struggle 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, Junger kept testing himself, braced for the death that would 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 translation.
