Tempestades de acero : Ernst Jünger :

The [British] sargeant practically had both legs sheered off by hand-grenade splinters; even so, with stoical calm, he kept his pipe clenched between his teeth acerl the end. Maybe in part these categories apply, but in my opinion there is more than just a war adventure in this book.

There are multiple editions of this book it has been released many times.
