Storm of Steel - Author And Officer Ernst Jünger

Ernst Jünger, one of the most read and debated writers of Germany, may not get much attention in American circles. However, his descriptions of war, detailed in the video, adds context to learners' understanding of the destruction wrought by World War I. Jünger's work is heavily excerpted in an informative video, allowing scholars to evaluate his experiences for themselves.
