SYNOPSIS : The memoir widely viewed as the best account ever written of fighting in WW1 A memoir of astonishing power, savagery, and ashen lyricism, Storm of Steel illuminates not only the horrors but also the fascination of total war, seen through the eyes of an ordinary German soldier. Young, tough, patriotic, but also disturbingly self-aware, Jรผnger exulted in the Great War, which he saw not just as a great national conflict butโ€”more importantlyโ€”as a unique personal struggle. Leading raiding parties, defending trenches against murderous British incursions, simply enduring as shells tore his comrades apart, Jรผnger kept testing himself, braced for the death that will mark his failure. Published shortly after the warโ€™s end, Storm of Steel was a worldwide bestseller and can now be rediscovered through Michael Hofmannโ€™s brilliant new translation. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

SYNOPSIS : In this fascinating account of the battle tanks that saw combat in the European Theater of World War II, Mary R. Habeck traces the strategies developed between the wars for the use of armored vehicles in battle. Only in Germany and the Soviet Union were truly original armor doctrines (generally known as "blitzkreig" and "deep battle") fully implemented. Storm of Steel relates how the German and Soviet armies formulated and chose to put into practice doctrines that were innovative for the time, yet in many respects identical to one another. As part of her extensive archival research in Russia, Germany, and Britain, Habeck had access to a large number of formerly secret and top-secret documents from several post-Soviet archives. This research informs her comparative approach as she looks at the roles of technology, shared influences, and assumptions about war in the formation of doctrine. She also explores relations between the Germans and the Soviets to determine whether collaboration influenced the convergence of their armor doctrines.

SYNOPSIS : Ernst Jรผnger was one of twentieth-century Germanyโ€™s most importantโ€”and most controversialโ€”writers. Decorated for bravery in World War I and the author of the acclaimed western front memoir Storm of Steel, he frankly depicted warโ€™s horrors even as he extolled its glories. As a Wehrmacht captain during World War II, Jรผnger faithfully kept a journal in occupied Paris and continued to write on the eastern front and in Germany until its defeatโ€”writings that are of major historical and literary significance. Jรผngerโ€™s Paris journals document his Francophile excitement, romantic affairs, and fascination with botany and entomology, alongside mystical and religious ruminations and trenchant observations on the occupation and the politics of collaboration. While working as a mail censor, he led the privileged life of an officer, encountering artists such as Cรฉline, Cocteau, Braque, and Picasso. His notes from the Caucasus depict the chaos after Stalingrad and atrocities on the eastern front. Upon returning to Paris, Jรผnger observed the French resistance and was close to the German military conspirators who plotted to assassinate Hitler in 1944. After fleeing France, he reunited with his family as Germanyโ€™s capitulation approached. Both participant and commentator, close to the horrors of history but often distancing himself from them, Jรผnger turned his life and experiences into a work of art. These wartime journals appear here in English for the first time, giving fresh insights into the quandaries of the twentieth century from the keen pen of a paradoxical observer.

SYNOPSIS : "the most powerful memoir of any war" --DAILY TELEGRAPH NEWSPAPER (Britain) "critical success ... revels in the glory of combat"--NEW YORK TIMES "one of the greatest works about the First World War" --THE INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER (Britain) NUMBER ONE NEW RELEASE for Kindle, in "Biography & Memoirs ...World War I" for August-September 2017. Full Title is "STORM OF STEEL: THE EPIC COMBAT MEMOIR OF A GERMAN INFANTRYMAN, Translated in American English." STORM OF STEEL is possibly the greatest combat memoir of the modern era. It is a universal first-hand account of the terrifying calamity that was the First World War of 1914-18. It is told through German eyes, but appeals to all humanity, regardless of nation. This new 2017 edition is a first translation in American-English (not British-English), and is designed especially for American readers. This is a breathtaking, never-to-be-forgotten account of war. Combat sequences are riveting, detailed, and precise. The book appeals to both students of military history, and to general readers of quality literature about the human condition This war memoir focuses on daily life in the combat trenches, and its haunting pathos. Although narrated through German eyes, it could be the story of any army of any nation. Grisly death and woundings are commonplace. However, there are also noble deeds of heroism and self-sacrifice, of average men willing to fight and die for each other. It is a universal tale of humanity, both evil and good, sin and redemption. This new 2017 translation is completely in American English (not British English). It is the only translation of the early edition of 1921-22, when the author was still in the German Army. It is the closest English edition yet to the original combat. Previous translations were by British-educated writers, and based on editions revised long after the war. American audiences will appreciate this new translation in American English, rather than British English. It uses modern military terminology, and provides fuller descriptions of European history and geography. It especially brings to life the German author's unusual fascination with the American West. Indeed, the author Jรผnger stands as a symbol of repentance and forgiveness. He was one of the most decorated German soldiers ever, but later used his prominence to movingly advocate the reconciliation of former enemies. His narrative contains poignant passages about lost souls upon the battlefield that know no national boundaries. New scholarship in this all-new 2017 edition reveals that author Ernst Jรผnger became a daring anti-Nazi during the Second World War. In 1944, he supported the German officers who sought to assassinate Adolf Hitler, and only escaped arrest and execution through a stunning twist of fate. Instead, Ernst Jรผnger survived to be one of the greatest German novelists of all time, not passing until the grand age of 102 in 1998. BH Masterworks is an imprint of Boston Hill Press, a premier publisher of quality books in history. ******************************************************************* What people have said about STORM OF STEEL: "The greatest war memoir I have ever read. ... undoubtedly the most powerful memoir of any war. ... combines the most astonishing literary gifts with absorption with war in every detail. --THE DAILY TELEGRAPH NEWSPAPER (Britain) "[a] critical success ... a memorial to fallen comrades and an attempt to make sense of his war experiences ... revels in the glory of combat"--NEW YORK TIMES (USA) "one of the greatest works about the First World War, along with those by Erich Maria Remarque, Henri Barbusse, e.e. cummings, David Jones and Lucien Descaves" --THE INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER (Britain) "a surgically precise view of battle"--ECONOMIST MAGAZINE (Britain)
