La tragedia que fue la Primera Guerra Mundial (solo superada por la hecatombes de la segunda) produjo una cantidad de obras maestras de inclinacion anti-belica, de las cuales una de las mas famosas fue Sin Novedad en el Frente la historia de las batallas a traves de los ojos prosaicos de unos soldados que luchan y matan sin saber por que lo hacen. La idea de que jovenes apenas salidos de la adolescencia tengan que ir al frente y sentir sus horrores, crea lo que llamaron una generacion perdida y las causas de ella desde el punto de vista de quienes efectivamente luchaban es el fondo de esta obra magistral, donde la amargura y la resignacion son caracteristicas fundamentales.

Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful and enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other, if only he can come out of the war alive.

    " Literally my favorite historical fiction novel. I've re-read it multiple times. This is the most powerful fiction novel I've ever read, and I honestly felt that it wasn't fiction multiple times because of how well Remarque fleshes out the characters. One day, I hope to read it in its original language of German, but even then-the English translation was wonderful. By far my favorite book of all time. "

    " A soldiers view of world war one "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe McDonough | 1/28/2014

    " This novel is like a perfect poem that conveys war's sorrow and emotion. It's one of literature's great reads for many reasons but most importantly for it's uniquely moving prose. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tarmo Tali | 1/25/2014

    " No one should read this book. Not because it's bad. It's not. It's great book that does not need any endorsement but such books should not have written. But they are. So you should read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/19/2014

    " This novel and 1984 are the only novels I truly remember from high school. This is the first novel to make me cry and was my introduction to the ultimate sadness of war, the loss of innocence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 1/17/2014

    " Amazing book, well written, draws you in. You feel like you are with the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Dunlap | 1/12/2014

    " This is the first war novel that I ever read willingly and I was not disappointed. The story surrounds a group of boys who are in the Western Front of WWI, and how they cope with the horrors of war and the death that follows. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mar Patro | 12/27/2013

    " Interesting perspective from a young German soldier's view during WWI. A group of youths join the army and seem to age overnight as they witness war at its worst. My classic for the summer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicholas | 11/15/2013

    " One of the best and saddest books I've ever read. Everyone should read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerry | 9/5/2013

    " Everyone in power should be made to read this before sending others to war. At least ancient kings lead their own forces and suffered along side their soldiers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wayne | 9/5/2013

    " Interesting study of the "war to end all wars". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anastasia | 2/8/2012

    " I actually found myself loving this book even though I'm not generally a fan of war books. There was something about it that made it so not a war book, just a story that involved a war. I think it really helped that it was utterly lacking in politics as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 12/22/2011

    " Always wanted to read this. Great prose. Depressing story. Always good to take a break from "pulp fiction" to read true literature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Darr | 11/18/2011

    " One of the greatest anti-war books ever written. Amazing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hugh Riisfeldt | 9/25/2011

    " It was intense. I feel that the first person insight really contributed to the establishment of a war setting. Thus, I reccomend this book to anyone with interest in war... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob | 5/24/2011

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 5/24/2011

    " 1. Another lame reason of why war stinks. 2. You know the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ivan | 5/23/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 5/21/2011

    " Remarque wrote this novel about World War I from firsthand experience. Its earnest denouncement of war is still valid and poignant today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 5/15/2011

    " I'm not a huge war book fan but I enjoyed this book a lot! It opened my eyes on what the war front was like in WWI! I felt connected to each of the characters and their families. Remarque had an amazing writing style and a great talent! Recommend it to everyone! 100% amazing... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 5/12/2011

    " Read this in high school, but I remember LOVING it. About a young soldier at war. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenton | 5/10/2011

    " it was dreary and numbing but a great read, conveyed the emotion of what it must have been like in the first world war "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesa | 5/7/2011

    " If you like realistic fiction war books that hurt your brain and make you sad because of how many people die, please read!
