Ernst Jünger 1895–1998) was a decorated German soldier and author who became famous for his World War I memoir ‘Storm of Steel’, published in 1920, shortly after the end of the war. Based on the journal entries he wrote during his time in the trenches, the book describes World War I through the eyes of an ordinary soldier. The book begins with Jünger’s initial deployment in 1915 and ends with him being severely wounded in 1918. He writes about the raiding parties, defending the trenches against British incursions, and simply enduring as shells tore his comrades apart. 'Storm of Steel' was a worldwide bestseller.

    " Brilliant. If you're going to read this books do as me, i was reading and following mentioned places on google earth. Took me almost one year to complete the reading but it worth it. "

    " Wounded 14 times in the four years of WWI, German soldier Junger's memoir records the shuffling about of willing human pawns in the chaotic, insane and deathly game of war. "

    " Heel realistische, bijna verheerlijkende beschrijving van een jonge Duitse soldaat tijdens de Eerste Wereldoorlog. "

    " Junger is a trooper, but my favorite parts of the book were the funny moments: when he goes to the hospital bed and is so, so excited to read Tristram Shandy, when he gets shot and is all like, hey, I feel kinda sublimely happy now. "

    " a vivid, oftentimes gruesome account of war and its toll on the mind "

    " geschafft: atemberaubend, erschreckend, beklemmend, schnell, laut, stinkend, nah, brutal, dicht.......sprachlos, wortgewaltig "

    " First person account via diaries and letters of life in the trenches from The Marne to The Somme III... "

    " This is one of the best WW1 memoirs I have read. The author describes in detail both the glory as well as the horrors of war. "

    " pretty cool. good job possible advocate of 'non-Nazi German fascism' "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marcus | 2/26/2013

    " Amazing story of a combat infantry soldier during WW1. Also gives insight into the European thinking of that period and why it lead to 2 World Wars. "

    " World War I was such a horrible awful thing. Reading it from the German perspective was very interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 9/16/2012

    " Relentless. Almost as good as the Forgotten Soldier, and that is saying something. Reading this I am astonished that anyone survived WWI at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 9/23/2011

    " Well written book by a German soldier who served in the first world war, later serving in the second as well, but it certainly isn't the most historically accurate book on WWI. Definitely has some fabrications, otherwise I would've liked it a lot more, nevertheless this is still a very good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hugh | 6/23/2011

    " Maybe the best war book I have ever read. This isn't fiction and the fact that it's fact takes it to a higher level. 6 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 4/5/2011

    " Here's the opposite of Graves. A German soldier in WWI who, like many in his country at the time, enthusiastically joined the war and doggedly saw it through with some patriotism. Does it glamorize? Sometimes. But it also shows the brutality of the war. Keep an open mind and be patient with it. "
