'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
All Quiet on the Western Front is the most famous anti-war novel ever written.
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.
