Waterstones Says

Written shortly after the end of the Great War – and based on the author’s own experiences – this classic of the genre, told from the German perspective, is a harrowing, unflinching depiction of the horrors of trench conflict which has lost none of its power or its pathos.

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.

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
