outstanding story of the war exploits of an extraordinary german soldier in world war 1. have a detailed map when you read the book. for english or american readers the towns referred to are many times unfamiliar because they were behind german lines.

This chilling and humbling account leaves the reader with a good sense of the physical annihalation of the First World War, but more in compassion with the average infantryman in the trenches. This piece includes raids, the psychological impact of gas and machine guns, and escape. There is little realization of the fact that Junger is German, for his book accurately brings the reader back to the trenches in Western Europe for a humbling experience whereby the psychological and emotional impact is tough not to remember.

Ernst Junger's "Storm of Steel" is an enthralling story about WWI. Junger was a soldier for Germany and rose in the ranks within the army. He was often wounded, but regardless, fought hard and was a great leader for his men. The book itself does not really analyze anything or have any hidden meanings; instead, it deals with observations and the stark reality of warfare. Many of Junger's friends died with him standing by their side, and throughout the book, you can see how Junger matures and learns from his experiences. On the whole, this is a very interesting book and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys war literature. It is an interesting version of WWI as it is given from the perspective of a German soldier, although it is not biased at all.

This is the truest account of WWI out there. Any one who loves history will love this book. No Opinions just one mans story! Who, what, where and when NO why....

I've read dozens of autobiographical war 'stories'. This one blows them all away. It is a crystal clear look at the beauty, horror, and boredom of war. Also refreshing to read something from the point of view of the Central Powers.

A stark potrayal of WW1 by a gifted author uniquely situated to portray war in all of its horrible facets.

"Storm of Steel" by Ernst Junger is an astounding first-hand description of surviving the horrors of four years of trench warfare on the Western Front during WWI.

The book 'Storm of Steel' is a wonderful memoir describing Junger's experience in WWI. In the book many times over he is injured, but each time he returns to fight another day. The book was great at describing what life was like for those in WWI. I would recomend this book to people who enjoy history. It is also helpful to know your geography to understand the locations discussed, or have a map nearby. Overall, i would recomend this book to anyone looking for a book to share time with.
