The Crusades were wars, so it would be a mistake to characterize them as nothing but piety and good intentions. Despite theses tales, typically being told in terms of great gods and heroes of mystical power and character, the events still reveal inherent truths in the nature of war and the growth of world powers. Distinctly different from novels like Barbusse's and later Erich Maria Remarque 's Im Westen nichts Neues ( All Quiet on the Western Front ), Jünger instead writes of the war as a valiant hero who embraced combat and brotherhood in spite of the horror.

However, due to poor military bureaucracy, Felix finds himself called up on continuous combat drops without reprieve, which will surely kill him. To make it even more believable, the aircraft are modeled just after the real ones used in World War II. The personal obligation which you have this day laid me under (although in common estimation as great as one human being can bestow on another) adds nothing to my zeal on your behalf; nor can that zeal be abated by any coolness with which you may please to receive it.'' ``Your intentions may be kind, sir,'' said Waverley, drily; ``but your language is harsh, or at least peremptory.'' ``On my return to England,'' continued Colonel Talbot, ``after long absence, I found your uncle, Sir Everard Waverley, in the custody of a kings messenger, in consequence of the suspicion brought upon him by your conduct.
