Paul Baumer is just nineteen years old when he and his classmates enlist. They are Germany’s Iron Youth who enter the war with high ideals and leave it disillusioned or dead. As Paul struggles with the realities of the man he has become, and the inscrutable world to which he must return, he is led like a ghost of his former self into the war’s final hours. All Quiet is one of the greatest war novels of all time, an eloquent expression of the futility, hopelessness and irreparable losses of war.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    " This book is a classic and is really a novel that details the horror and ravishes of war. Not just the impact physically on the soldier but also the life changing experience that a soldier will carry with him for the rest of his life. The propoganda an idealism that initially excites a young man and drives him to enlist is completely shattered and changes his view of the world and his fundamental character to the point that all innocence and hope is gone. At one point he feels that he know longer belongs in his pre-war world. It was so realistis that under the Hitler regime this was one of the books that was burned under a modern day Bonfire of the Vanities. In short, a must read "

    " Fremragende bog med en tilpas god veksling mellem handling og beskrivelse. Bogen er desuden en kærkommen lejlighed til at reflektere over meningen med krig og den menneskelige udvikling i ungdomsårene. "

    " Amazing war novel that portrays the feeling and attitudes of soldiers and their cruel conditions during WWI. They despise the war but cannot conform to normal society as well. An amazing literary novel. "
