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

display_description Tells the story of Paul B?a?umer, a soldier who joined the German army shortly after the start of World War I. B?a?umer arrives at the Western front with his friends and meets Stanislaus Katczinsky, an older soldier, nicknamed Kat, who becomes Paul's mentor. Tells of the conditions in which the soldiers find themselves -- the brutality of war. The monotony between battles, the constant threat of artillery fire, the struggle to find food, and the overarching role of random chance in the lives and deaths of the soldiers are described in detail.
