Publisher's Description

Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I.

I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . .

This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches.

Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . .  if only he can come out of the war alive.

"The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure."The New York Times Book Review

Author Bio

Erich Maria Remarque, who was born in Germany, was drafted into the German army during World War I. Through the hazardous years following the war he worked at many occupations: schoolteacher, small-town drama critic, race-car driver, editor of a sports magazine. His first novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, was published in Germany in 1928. A brilliant success, selling more than a million copies, it was the first of many literary triumphs. When the Nazis came to power, Remarque left Germany for Switzerland. He rejected all attempts to persuade him to return, and as a result he lost his German citizenship, his books were burned, and his films banned. He went to the United States in 1938 and became a citizen in 1947. He later lived in Switzerland with his second wife, the actress Paulette Goddard. He died in September 1970.

    This review was written for All Quiet on the Western Front.
    Told by German soldier Paul Bumer, All Quiet on the Western Front is the story of a group of schoolmates who enlisted in the German army during World War I. We watch as these young men fight at the front lines, and entertain themselves between battles. We see the losses, and the hardness that overtakes them as the years pass, until they all begin to wonder if they will ever see the end of the war.

    The author, Erich Remarque, was a soldier for Germany during the First World War, and was wounded several times. This is something to think about as you read the accounts of the horrors of war within these pages.

    The novel is written in present tense, which is usually a big negative for me. Yet, somehow, it works here. Though it did take some time for me to get adjusted to it.

    What won me over most with this novel is the imagery. Passages of description, whether of a place or a feeling, brought a lump to my throat many times.

    Overall, this novel reminds us that, at the end of it all, we are all human. Even our enemies. We experience the same fears and love. And if human compassion could drive all of our efforts, there would be no war.
