ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT is the most famous anti-war novel ever written.

One by one the boys begin to fall…

In 1914 a room full of German schoolboys, fresh-faced and idealistic, are goaded by their schoolmaster to troop off to the ‘glorious war’. With the fire and patriotism of youth they sign up. What follows is the moving story of a young ‘unknown soldier’ experiencing the horror and disillusionment of life in the trenches.

About the Author

Erich Maria Remarque was born in 1899. He fought and was injured in the trenches in the First World War when he was eighteen years old. He was exiled and his works were burnt by the Nazis. He lived in America and Switzerland and married and divorced his first wife twice before marrying the celebrated Hollywood actress Paulette Goddard. He published several novels after All Quiet on the Western Front, the most famous of which is The Road Back. He died in 1970.

WRITE A REVIEW

Where Horror and Humour Combine

5

I questioned the title for some time, as things were far from 'all quiet' for much of the book. In the end, the final paragraph answered my concerns. The author had marvellous inside knowledge to authenticate this narrative. It rings true.

This undoubtably highlights the horrors of war and makes one appreciate the great sacrifices those men made for their countries.

"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 * "There are some books that should be read by every generation... Remarque's story of German trench soldiers of the 1914-18 war gains even more authority in the context of the loss of life in wars that still rage" -- Chris Searle "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 * "The book conquers without persuading, it shakes you without exaggerating, a perfect work of art and at the same time truth that cannot by doubted" -- Stefan Zweig
