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.Hide synopsis

This was an excellent first person narrative of a soldier's experiences in WW I. It is a short book but the writing is worth the read. A lot was packed into a few words. I'd recommend it for anyone who likes to learn what it was like from those who were there. Former soldiers and military history buffs will relate to it on many levels - this Vietnam veteran did.
An excellent book! For those who want a complete story of the Great War, this is a must read book. Told from the German soldiers point of view, the reader gets a different perspective of this period of history.
