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.

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 From the Trade Paperback edition.

A veteran of World War I, Erich Maria Remarque found himself in a unique position to render the experience of war, both its internal and external ravages, in an intimate and realistic way. Responding directly to the then-nameless trauma many veterans and soldiers experienced in their lives, Remarque's novel is often hailed as pacifist work, though it often defies classification as a result of its undeniable loyalty to simple storytelling. This compelling volume explores the life and work of Erich Maria Remarque and expands upon the theme of war present in his classic novel. Readers are presented with a diverse set of essays that provide a wide range of perspectives on questions such as whether war results in a loss of innocence, and whether the book offers critiques of modern warfare. This edition also touches upon current perspectives related to war and peace, allowing readers to connect the events of the text to the issues of today's world.
