The rare first edition of Jünger's second published work.
In 1920 Jünger had published his WWI-diaries "In Stahlgewittern". Together with a few other early works, the two first publications make up his account of WWI. The second publication is much more reflected and systematically written than the first.
Ernst Jünger (1895-1998) was a famous German writer and philosopher. He is by many regarded as one of the greatest modern German writers as well as somewhat of a hero of the conservative revolutionary movement following WWI; - besides his important contributions to philosophy, he is mainly famous for the accounts of his experiences during the two world wars.
Jünger distinguished himself greatly during WWI; he was wounded several times, and was honoured with the highest military order, the medal of bravery, Pour le Mérite.
