Martin. On the Natural History of Destruction is a book by the German writer W. original German title is Luftkrieg und Literatur, which means "Air war and literature".It consists of essays about literature and writers, through which Sebald discusses the German processing of World War II.

The book may have originated from the Pyramid Texts dawn myth accounts, but by the New Kingdom the idea was developed to explain death and suffering in an imperfect creation. The work has been viewed as a form of theodicy and a magical text to ensure the king's ascent into heaven.

Interconnected essays from the recently deceased German novelist (Austerlitz,etc.) on his nation’s capacity to cause, absorb, and forget suffering.“In spite of strenuous efforts to come to terms with the past,” writes Sebald, “it seems to me that we Germans today are a nation strikingly blind to history and lacking in tradition.”.

When it was released, The Eve of Destruction received exceedingly positive reviews.

(See, for example, his inadvertently comical analysis of the significance of "Satisfaction," released by Rolling Stones inand Bob Dylan's shift to electric music.) That shift was epitomized, for Patterson, in the song that gives his book its title: Barry McGuire's short-lived hit "The Eve of Destruction." Patterson is a careful scholar.

‎Meeka was finally rescued, Cage learned he was a unique class of mage and Daku was the last of his kind. All in life wasn't meant to be easy, especially with two women who he loved, a headstrong stepdaughter and a tribe to take care of. Cage though was more than up for the challenge as he could.
