Boell was born in Cologne. His father was a cabinetmaker and sculptor, whose ancestors had fled from England to escape the persecution of Roman Catholics. Boell started to write poetry and short stories in his youth. He was one of the few boys in his school who did not join the Hitler Youth movement. After graduating from high school in 1937, he was drafted into the compulsory work program. Boell served six years as a private and a corporal in the army on both the Soviet and Western fronts. He was wounded four times, and at the end of the war he was interned in a prisoner-of-war camp in France.
