Having heard of Jünger’s involvement with the Conservative Revolutionary Movement I approached his most famous work “Storm of Steel” especially interested in reading political thoughts that could be seen as pertaining to that movement. My expectations were, however, confounded; although, it didn’t’ take long before I began to appreciate that work for its own peculiar brilliance. Of course one could say that a certain outlook pervades that work subtextually – one could even call it t [...]
Junger was a soldier in the Imperial German Army serving during most of the WWI. In this work, Junger expands upon his journal entries towards the end of the war by presenting his own reflections. This work provides a great insight into some of the driving forces of WWI such as a strong ultra-nationalist sentiment and social Darwinism.
Some of Ernst Junger's work on war deals with the sometimes terrifying, sometimes prosaic and dull realities of the life of a soldier in a trench. Other of Junger's books on war deal with the effects of war on the psyche and the soul. "Copse 125" gives one a hearty sampling of both types of chronicle. The book intersperses "Tagebuch"-style entries on various troop maneuvers, movements, and ration issues with deep philosophical ruminations on how a select breed of men (Junger channels Nietzsche q [...]
Interesting. Juenger adapted entries from his war diary (See "Storm of Steel" for a much fuller account) relating to a week or so that he spent along one stretch of the Western Front in 1918 (after the German Spring Offensive) along with later recollections of events and his postwar thoughts on the significance of the war. The result is not a straight-forward description of his war experience. Juenger's radical right philosophy comes through at multiple points; in his considerations of liberalis [...]
I'll admit right off the bat I am a "Storm of Steel" guy. I read it first and was sucked right in. I picked this book up thinking it would prove more of the same but was quite mistaken. I believe the book has merit in that it explores a multitude of experiences and ideas he had perculating in his head. His ideas on the future warrior and the new wave of military hardware are rather uncanny and farseeing. It was enjoyable reading his ideas on leadership and know from personal experience he is rig [...]
Another Great War memoir by Ernst Junger -- this one based on his 1918 experiences at Copse 125, known to the Allies as Rossignol Wood. There was a lot of flowery exposition of the greatness and superiority of the German spirit, so much that you could see the tender green shoots of Nazism sprouting at the base of every word. But he also got down to brass tacks concerning his combat experience, some of it quite hair-raising. After 4 years of that sort of brutality, I'd have to say he earned his s [...]
A fascinating memoir by a German soldier serving in the trenches in 1918 that is particularly revealing of Juenger's radical right philosophy, his social Darwinist vision of war, his fervent nationalism, and in his constant musings about a particular model of warrior heroism.
Titre en français : le boqueteau 125. En d'autres termes une petite colline du nord de la France prise et reprise cinquante fois par les deux camps vers la fin de la guerre en 1918. Qui permet à l'auteur de continuer son évocation de la première guerre. Aussi bon qu'Orages d'acier.
