Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, 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.

    🔮Hidden Depths

    I truly understand why it is called the best war book of all time. It was so emotional and heartbreaking.

    Shells, gas clouds, and flotillas of tanks--shattering, corroding, death.

    Dysentery, influenza, typhus--scalding, choking, death.

    Trenches, hospitals, the common grave--there are no other possibilities.

    "Mostly by one country badly offending another," answers Albert with a slight air of superiority.

    Then Tjaden pretends to be obtuse. "A country? I don't follow. A mountain in Germany cannot offend a mountain in France. Or a river, or a wood, or a field of wheat."

    "Are you really as stupid as that, or are you just pulling my leg?" growls Kropp, "I don't mean that at all. One people offends the other--"

    "Then I haven't any business here at all," replies Tjaden, "I don't feel myself offended."

    "Well, let me tell you," says Albert sourly, "it doesn't apply to tramps like you."

    "Then I can be going home right away," retorts Tjaden, and we all laugh, "Ach, man! he means the people as a whole, the State--" exclaims Müller.

    "State, State"--Tjaden snaps his fingers contemptuously, "Gendarmes, police, taxes, that's your State;--if that's what you are talking about, no, thank you."
