All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
This is the story of German boys who go to war under the influence of patriotic propaganda, not realising that what awaits them is not the glory of heroes, but disability and death…..
Every day of the war takes the lives of fathers and sons, while newspapers impassively report, “Nothing new in the West.” …..
This book is neither an accusation nor a confession. It is an attempt to tell the story of the generation that the war destroyed, of those who became its victims, even if they managed to escape shells and bullets.
