All Quiet on the Western Front

Book 1, All Quiet on the Western Front - A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

“The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. 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

All Quiet on the Western Front...

Beautiful

Always Relevant

All Quiet on the Western Front is an assault on the mind as it vividly describes the young men caught up in a senseless maelstrom of filth and carnage. There is no glory in war. Anyone who thinks there is has not read this story of the appalling conditions and relentless erosion of the human spirit that results. I cried at the conclusion because there could be no other path to peace for Paul Baumer. Though fiction, the characters are incredibly real and human. This is a masterful work and a must read for all.
