Just finished Storm of Steel last night
>Mfw at the end he stands up after being shot in the long, feels better after the blood pours out of it, is surrounded and to told to surrender by two brits but pulls out his pistol and shoots one dead

The part that really gave me feels was when he saw the guy who got bullied in training pulling his bullies out of a crater and carrying their burnt bodies on his back to safety and ernst collapsed and cried for the first time

Yeah lmao, a shell literally landed in the room next to him iirc, he woke up for like one second and said "fuck em" and went back to sleep

File: 17 KB, 220x290, 220px-Emily_Brontë_by_Patrick_Branwell_Brontë_restored.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google]

Paris, 3 August 1942

Finished reading Renan, Das Leben Jesu [The Life of Jesus] and in addition Robert de Traz, La Famille Bronte [The Bronte Family].

The Brontes are signifcant because they seem to possess an intelligence unlike that of other people - one that flows to them indiscriminately, like electric current. You can almost imagine knowledge being conducted through the earth and through the trunk of the tree until it reaches the bird's nest and the young brood in it. Such power could endow heavenly bodies with intelligence.

This extraordinary side of the Brontes suggests that it is the rule on other stars, in other profound thought systems. In this sense, prophetic dreams that come true, second sight, and prophecies are all extraordinary. In the same way that colors exist outside the visible spectrum, there also exists a dark body of lore that is seldom individuated. The harmony and subtle interaction of our life cycles depend on its invisible influence.

cthonic overlords projected briefly into terrestrial temporality to communicate dark masterpieces of a christian metaphysics dipped in shadow and the densest of human doubts; pre-emptive masters of psychological analytics via novel-chained personalities that express the entire spectrum of transcendental divine/human struggles. talked to stones. loved rain and solitude.

Honestly idk, I was skimming through his Paris diaries the other day and came across that entry. Just thought it was humorously synchronicitous given the repetitive Bronte shitposting I've seen on this board in the last couple weeks and decided to transcribe it.

I rly like the part in storm of steel when he talks about the British “machine gun artist” who wrecks havoc on their trench. He really admires his enemies.

Also that part when he is impressed by some crazy fucking Brit who rushed over to their trench during a gas attack and killed a lot of germans using (maybe) a baseball bat or some kind of club.
