the subtle ramifications of class distinctions
in a period of rapid social change and the
quality of life in Britain’s poverty-stricken
industrial areas. As haunting as its predecessor, this moving antiwar novel is also a
cautionary tale about the price of cultural

STORM OF STEEL
Translated with an Introduction
by Michael Hofmann
“To read this extraordinary book is to gain
unique insight into the compelling nature
of organized, industrialized violence....[A]
superlative translation.”—Niall Ferguson.
“I can’t remember when I’ve read a book as
thrilling and hypnotic, as perversely mag-nificent....Jünger’s great book matter-of-factly
conveys the mysterious glamour of war, the
exhilaration of its excess and intensity and,
not least, the undeniable glory of men bravely preparing for battle as for ‘some terrible
silent ceremonial that portends human sacrifice.’”—Michael Dirda, The Washington Post
