    One of the great war memoirs, published here in a stunning Deluxe Edition for the centenary of World War I and the Battle of the Somme—and featuring a foreword by theNew York Times bestselling author of Matterhorn A worldwide bestseller published shortly after the end of World War I, Storm of Steelis a memoir of astonishing power, savagery, and ashen lyricism. It illuminates not only the horrors but also the fascination of total war, as seen through the eyes of an ordinary German soldier.Young, tough, patriotic, but also disturbingly self-aware, Ernst Jünger exulted in the Great War, which he saw not just as a great national conflict but also—more importantly—as a unique personal struggle. Leading raiding parties, defending trenches against murderous British incursions, simply enduring as shells tore his comrades apart, Jünger keeps testing himself, braced for the death that will mark his failure. His account is ripe for rediscovery upon the centennial of the Battle of the Somme—a major set piece in Storm of Steel—and a bracing read for fans of Redeployment and American Sniper.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

    From the author of the New York Times bestseller Matterhorn. Here, Karl Marlantes takes a deeply personal and candid look at what it is like to experience the ordeal of combat, critically examining how we might better prepare our soldiers for war. War is as old as humankind, but in the past, warriors, were prepared for battle by ritual, religion, and literature – which also helped bring them home. In a compelling narrative, the author weaves riveting accounts of his combat experiences with thoughtful analysis, self-examination and his readings – from Homer to the Mahabharata to Jung. He tells frankly about how he is haunted by the face of the young North Vietnamese soldier he killed at close quarters and how he finally found a way to make peace with his past. 257p.
