Jünger, Ernst, Penguin Classics, NY, NY , 2004 (English)

The classic ww1 German war book. Jünger is simply amazing.  He survives the storm and probably 10 or more wounds to win the Blue Max. A quick read that purists say you must read in German. This is a paperback, cheap, and you get a feel. Jünger is an officer.  You see things through that lens. He teaches as you read and I do not think I could have survived as he did.  Jünger is everything Martin is not.  A good comparison. This guy lived to be 100. I am told that the new translations are far better.  I read the old translation so maybe worth another read.
