Translation of 'In Stahlgewittern.' Reprint of the 1929 English edition published by Chatto & Windus, London.
Ernst Junger was born in 1895. At the outbreak of the First World War, the nineteen year old Junger enlisted in the 73rd Hanoverian Fusiliers and fought in this regiment for over four years - during much of the time commanding platoons of shock troops in the bloody trench warfare of Northern France and Flanders. Wounded seven times, he was decorated with the highest German military award, the 'Pour le merite.' His war journal, The Storm of Steel,' first published in 1920, brought Junger immediate acclaim for its unflinching honesty and graphic narrative force. Stamped with truth, it remains among the half-dozen most memorable books in the literature of the First World War.
