    Sturm, by Ernst Jünger.

    I have been an avid reader of Júnger since many years ago his magnus opus "On the marble cliffs" fell into my hands. In my opinion, he is one of the most lucid, insightful thinkers of the 20th century. Sturm is a short novel, located in the frontline during World War I. Sturm...
