Product Description

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.
"The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first trank, 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

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. The latest translation and republication of 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 from Bosnia to Kashmir' Chris Searle * 'The book conquers without persuading, it shakes you without exaggerating, a perfect work of art and at the same time truth that cannot be doubted' Stefan Sweig" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
