Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front
Remarque's evocation of the Horror
s of modern warfare has lost none of its force' 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. Translated by Brian Murdoch .
