In the book ”In Stahlgewitter” here translated into English ”Storm of Steel”, he describes his experiences at the front during the First World War, where he kept a diary notes between the battles of January 1915 to the autumn of 1918 when he was seriously injured for the fourteenth time, and was awarded the German arm's highest gallantry award, ”Pour le Merite”.
