Staff Reviews


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

Description


Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other--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 trank, 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."
