All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque. This book is one of the most powerful Antiwar Novels of all time. Published in Germany in 1929, it rapidly became a bestseller worldwide. It portrays the horror and the desperate futility of combat. Remarque fought for Germany in WWI, but his masterpiece was banned under Nazi rule, and he was stripped of his citizenship in WWII.— Roberta Rubin
This 1929 novel served as Remarque's attempt to confront and ultimately rid himself of the graphic and haunting memories of his time serving in World War I. This work features an annotated bibliography, a list of other works by the author, and an introduction by literary scholar Harold Bloom.
