Arguing that the war in the east has been overshadowed in public remembrance by literary depictions of the war on the western front, Eva Horn delves into novelistic portrayals of the eastern front. The chapter finds that, in contrast to the traumatic technologized trench warfare of the west, the “wild war” on the eastern front was “not a war of machines but a war of bodies and mentalities, not a war of nations but of ethnicities, not a war of destruction from a distance but a dirty, destructive interaction between enemies.”

Keywords:   Ernst Jünger, Erich Maria Remarque, Freikorps novels, Walter Bloem, Viktor Jungfer, World War I eastern front literature, Arnold Zweig
