"Remarque's evocation of the horrors of modern warfare has lost none of its force" The Times "Remarque is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank" New York Times Book Review "Brian Murdoch's new English translation shows that Remarque's evocation of the horrors of modern warfare has lost none of its force" The Times "There are some books that should be read by every generation...
