Week 8 discussion | History homework help

For week 8, we turn to the German perspective of the Western Front and introduce the US to the war. Our questions for this week refer back to these two perspectives, asking you to work with Ernst Jünger’s Storm of Steel and Alan Seeger’s poem “I Have a Rendezvous with Death.” (ATTACHED)

  1. In your opinion, does Ernst Jünger glorify the violence of World War One in Storm of Steel or does he mercilessly describe it? Why?
  2. How do Jünger’s descriptions of the war from the German perspective compare to the French or British perspectives seen in Chevallier’s Fear or Graves’s Goodbye to All That? Please choose one passage from Storm of Steel to refer to in your answer. 
  3. Howard describes in Chapter 6 how the US under Woodrow Wilson sought to initiate peace negotiations for the war. How did the Allies’ peace terms differ from those of the German High Command, and what were some of the main points of contention between the two sets of peace terms?
  4. In your opinion, what makes Seeger’s “I Have a Rendezvous with Death” one of the most poignant poems about the war and in what ways is it different from, say, the poems that Siegfried Sassoon was beginning to write in 1916?
