ABSTRACT
An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It examines the expressionist war plays "Sturm gegen Gott" and "sturmpatrull," written by Arnolt Bronnen. "Sturm gegen Gott" was closely based on "sturmpatrull." Both plays were set in the high Alps of Austria. "Sturm gegen Gott" was intended as a one-act play whereas "sturmpatrull" was divided into three scenes. Both plays depict soldiers of the Third Tirolean Kaiserjäger of the Austrian army tired out by the bombings of the Italians as they try to hold their trenches.
