All Quiet on the Western Front
Introduced by Geoff Dyer
The most famous German anti-war novel, based on Remarque’s own experiences in the trenches, tells the story of a generation destroyed by war.
Few novels have described the reality of the First World War with such honesty and raw eloquence as All Quiet on the Western Front. Over a million copies were sold in the year after its first publication in 1929, and an award-winning film adaptation followed in 1930. The book was later banned by the Nazis, who also revoked Remarque’s citizenship.
