Review: ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT by Erich Maria Remarque

Matt’s Book Blog recently reviewed All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

The author was drafted at the age eighteen into the German Army. In this fictionalized memoir of the First World War, he describes the lives and endurance of a group of soldiers who were still only teenagers when they experienced the brutality of trench warfare. The battle scenes are gripping and almost intolerably vivid. I think the book is both an anti-war novel and a coming of age story.

  1. A great review, I read this a very long time ago, and found it very thought provoking.

  2. Not sure I’ll have time to read this one for the challenge, but it’s on my to-read list for sure.
