The person who reviewed this book just a few days ago totally missed the point of this book.

Yes, he was having a great war. He shows you how the actual grunts felt enthusiastic about the war until the very end.

If you really believed everyone was grumbling and thinking mopey crap like "All Quiet on the Western Front", how do you suppose a war could go on for so long? The defeatists wrote their books for a defeated audience. Junger wrote about victories by men who could be crushed but never conquered.
