All quiet on the Western front by Erich Maria Remarque

About the book

This story is told by a young soldier in the trenches of Flanders during the First World War. Through his eyes we see the realities of war. Incidents are vividly described, but there is no sense of adventure, only the feeling of youth betrayed.

Reviewed by The Page Turners

Everyone should read this book – a beautiful translation of a moving and harrowing WW1 story; an opportunity to delve into history, memoirs and poetry and consider the possible effects of combat particularly on young men.
