Ludwig Renn (pseud. Arnold F. V. von Gol├čenau) authored the novel “War” (“Krieg”), first published in 1928 by Verlag Die Schmiede in Berlin. This work is a fictional account based on Renn’s personal experiences as a German officer during World War I. The narrative offers an unvarnished portrayal of the life of soldiers in the trenches, and the brutal realities of war. “War” has been recognized for its anti-war stance and realistic depiction of military life, contributing significantly to the genre of war literature.
