All Quiet on the Western Front is probably the most famous anti-war novel ever written. The story is told by a young 'unknown soldier' in the trenches of Flanders during the First World War. Through his eyes we see all the realities of war; under fire, on patrol, waiting in the trenches, at home on leave, and in hospitals and dressing stations. Although there are vividly described incidents which remain in mind, there is no sense of adventure here, only the feeling of youth betrayed and a deceptively simple indictment of war - of any war - told for a whole generation of victims.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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

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
