    No because WW2 wasn't like that. In the words of Jünger himself:
    >[WW2] had disappointed me. The modern war...It doesn’t live up to its literary model. For example, there are no horses anymore. It’s like being on a giant motorway, isn’t it? It has nothing to do with genuine heroics. Chivalry in war has disappeared.

      Ernst Junger got incredibly lucky in his service during the war and was just the right type of crazy to deify his experience of the conflict. If the wind had blown in just the right direction one day, then he might have had his brains splattered by an 18-pounder all over some shell crater in france.

      Not to denigrate him. The man was absolutely a born warrior--the same type of freak you hear about every now and then in every single conflict who just loves the thrill of nearly dying some violent death randomly every day while pitted against an adversary. The problem is that these kinds of people, especially the ones who live to write about it (rare, for obvious reasons), fuel the old mythology of the war hero and send more young idiots to the industrial slaughter.

      I think Erich Maria Remarque's novel was basically an exaggerated account of his time in the war given the only gallantry his service record shows is being on the front for less than two months before catching some shrapnel from a shell, but whether or not it was largely fictional doesn't matter since it resonated with the vast majority of the lost generation and it's probably a good thing that it largely colored the popular perception of the war.

      Chivalry in war has never been a real thing, only a myth.

      The only issue is that there is really no such thing as an "anti-war" work. If you talk about the horrors of war, you then exalt the people who lived through them, so then people begin to revere veterans (thus perpetuating the "honor" thing) even while openly opposing war.

      Any true "anti-war" work would have to color everybody involved from the politicians and generals down to the lowly grunt as a pitiful, stupid idiot in the midst of making a moronic mistake. Only then will you see young men not wanting to go to war.

      it's not ww2 nor does it have the same sentiment as storm of steel, but if you liked storm of steel you might like "Somme Mud". a pretty underappreciated memoir of ww1.

        That myth has repeatedly restrained uncaring war when remembered as the ideal.

        That's literally most Vietnam-era books for the US and Chechnya war books for Russia.

        i would argue that it existed between the higher ranks where you had aristocrats playing by rules with each other so they can be much more likely to be captured and ransomed and spend the rest of their lives basking in glory and status over the ordeal. for the average schmuck though? no such luck

        Do not know what the English version is about but translating "In Stahlgewittern" (plural) to "Storm of steel" is ridiculous to begin with. The book itself is a diary, more a journal. The style is of an unaffected observer. Making a "born warrior" out of that sounds similar to seeing Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket as an Marine comercial.

          Maybe the German version has a different tone, but in the English translation I read it is obvious that Junger lusted after the fight, and really deified his own experience of the war.

          His combat record seems to correlate this.

        What's wrong with war? It can be a just and noble thing, as long as it's not for the interests of the capitalist class.

          You must be crazy. I am old enough to remember the man with iron arms and lost legs first hand. All traumatized, psycotic. War is Horror and there is no noble reason invading other countries. Sure in the US it's "raison d'état" and they have to glorify their primitive barbarism.

            Lmfao homosexuals like you are the first one to piss and shit themselves when the artillery rain begins and to fall into panic. Shut the frick up you pretentious moron. There's nothing good nor noble about war, and you will find out the moment your buddy's legs get blown off next to you and he starts screeming so loud your ear drums are about to burst. Piece of shit fricktard, calls other people "christcucks" but says there's good and evil. You absolute troglodyte.

    The Eastern Front by Degrelle and Stuka Pilot by Rudel are good, but not of the same literary merit. They were both remarkable heroes, even more outstanding than Junger.

    Not quite. You get some good memoirs or diaries but none of them are written by heroic born-warriors like Junger, in addition to the fact that WWII was a very different sort of war, like anons and Junger have said. Still, if you want recommendations for good WWII memoirs I can recommend Vasily Grossman's accounts (though he was a propagandist for the USSR and you have to read between the lines), and Junger's own Paris diaries.

      He was just an addicted writer. He wrote about what he didn’t need to and what he didn’t need to. He’s not bourgeoise in the regard that he fought in war also.
