Junger: Thoughts & Perspectives, Volume Eleven

ERNST Jünger (1895-1998), who lived a long and fulfilling life, became one of Germany's most admired literary figures. He is best remembered for his detailed memoirs as a lieutenant and commander in the First World War, a period which is forever immortalised in 'The Storm of Steel' (1920). Other works detailing his military exploits on the Western Front include 'Fire and Blood' (1925), 'The Adventurous Heart' (1929), 'Copse 125: A Chronicle from the Trench Warfare of 1918' (1930) and 'On Pain' (1934). Jünger, who was heavily decorated for his wartime exploits, was also an intellectual and produced several philosophical novels, among them 'On the Marble Cliffs' (1939), 'Heliopolis' (1949), 'The Glass Bees' (1957), 'Eumeswil' (1977), 'Aladdin's Problem' (1983) and 'A Dangerous Encounter' (1985). Another dimension to Ernst Jünger was his interest in politics and a firm opposition to both democracy and liberalism. In association with men such as Oswald Spengler (1880-1936), Arthur Moeller van den Bruck (1876-1925), Ernst von Salomon (1902-1972), Carl Schmitt (1888-1985) and Ernst Niekisch (1889-1967), he performed a leading role in the ranks of the Conservative Revolution. The topics discussed in this new book from Black Front Press include Jünger and National Bolshevism, Ernst Jünger and the Endtimes, Ernst Jünger: A Portrait of An Anarch, Jünger and the Third Reich, Ernst Jünger as an Icon of “the Fascist Style”, and The Military Adventures of Ernst Jünger and much more. The contributors are Troy Southgate (Editor), Julius Evola, Professor Tomislav Sunic, Alain de Benoist, K. R. Bolton, Keith Preston, Dimitris Michalopoulos and Elena Semenyaka.
