All quiet on the western front – Erich Maria Remarque

This classic war story is told by a young German soldier in the trenches during the First World War. After a rigorous period of military training, Baumer and his friends go to the front as infantrymen. Filled with glorious ideas about war, Baumer quickly discovers that the blood-drenched trenches of the Western Front are in reality a quagmire of misery and violent death. As soon as the first shells explode in the mud Paul and his friends realize everyone back home is a liar, that war is not glorious but rather destroys all that is decent and healthy.
