Stories from the Trenches is a massive book, but Firstenberg's career merits this level of detailed coverage. Any fan of '80s action, b-movie history, or low-budget filmmaking will find this book a very interesting read.

Packed with a film by film breakdown of Firstenberg's career in an interview format, taking in his time as an assistant on films such as Diamonds, Lepke and Sorcerer, then his years at Cannon directing such cult movies as Revenge of The Ninja, the crazed Ninja III: The Domination, Breakin' 2:Electric Boogaloo, American Ninja 1&2, Avenging Force and Delta Force 3 right through to working with Nu Image on cult movies such as American Samurai and beyond.
There are also numerous behind the scenes photos, interviews with numerous alumni such as Michael Dudikoff, Lucinda Dickey, Gideon Porath and even Shabba - Do! The danger with a book like this is that the focal point is not very interesting. Fortunately Firstenberg comes across really well, tells you everything you want to know about the concept, production, editing and release of his films and is full of anecdotes about the stars he has worked with. He also opens your eyes to many of the challenges filmmakers encounter in low to mid budget cinema.
All in all an absolutely fascinating book, epic in scale and hugely recommended.
755 Seiten voller erstklassiker Informationen mit Tonnen von Bildern von den Stars sowie den Filmen! Dazu noch die akkurate Recherche dieser Klassiker auf den Punkt getroffen! Könnte noch ohne Ende was dazu schreiben aber dann würde ich kein Ende finden!
Marco Siedelmann hat wirklich ein Meisterwerk des 80er Jahre Action/ Ninja/ Cannon Films erschaffen!
Ein Muss für jeden Fan!
