A NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
All Quiet on the Western Front begins with Paul Baumer, who along with his classmates enlisted in the Germany army during World War I. They were all able to graduate and become soldiers. But training and actual combat are two entirely different things. They fall apart during their first bombardment in the trenches. As the war wages on, Paul dedicates himself 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. Will Paul survive or will the unpredictability of war catch up to him?
Erick Maria Remarque is one of those authors who can manipulate the language to form whatever he wants. Whether he writes of real or inanimate objects, according to New York Times “his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”
