by Ernst Jünger
Originally published in 1925, Fire and Blood (Feuer und Blut) is Ernst Jünger's fourth book. It expands on the chapter The Great Battle from Jünger's first book, In Storms of Steel (In Stahlgewittern). In Fire and Blood, Jünger leads a company of assault troops during the Spring Offensive in 1918, which was Germany’s last attempt to defeat the British and French armies on the Western Front. Fire and Blood is over four times the size of The Great Battle, resulting in stylistic changes, as well as more detailed descriptions.
This is an English translation of Feuer und Blut, published by Stahlhelm-Verlag, Magdeburg, Germany, 1925.
