  • "Through the eyes and mind of a German private, the reader shares life on the battlefield during World War I."
  • "During the last days of World War I, a group of German soldiers suffer physically and mentally as their idealistic dreams of glory turn into a desperate struggle to stay alive."@en
  • "A young German and three of his classmates are taken away from school to serve in the trenches during World War I. This classic tale expresses the suffering and futility of war. First published in 1929."@en
  • "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."
  • "At the outset of World War I a group of German schoolboys, fired by patriotism, enlist for the Fatherland but are ill-prepared for the realities of trench warfare. Milestone sought to convey Remarque's pacifist message through a mixture of stylisation and naturalism. The poetic dialogue combines humour and sentimentality. The much-praised sense of reality in the recreation of trench warfare was achieved through unusually precise pre-planning and the harnessing of camera movement to swift cutting."
  • "The story is told by a young 'unknown soldier' in the trenches of Flanders during the First World War. Through his eyes we see all the realities of war; under fire, on patrol, waiting in the trenches, at home on leave, and in hospitals and dressing stations. Although there are vividly described incidents which remain in mind, there is no sense of adventure here, only the feeling of youth betrayed and a deceptively simple indictment of war - of any war - told for a whole generation of victims."
  • "PLAYAWAY. In 1914, a room full of German schoolboys, fresh-faced and idealistic, are goaded by their schoolmaster to troop off to the 'glorious war'. With the fire and patriotism of youth, they sign up. What follows is the moving story of a young 'unknown soldier' experiencing the horror and disillusionment of life in the trenches: an indictment of war told for a whole generation."
  • "The thoughts and feelings of young men sent to die for a war they did not believe in-- based on Remarque's own experiences as a German soldier."@en

  • "Paul Bäumer is just 19 years old when he and his classmates enlist. They are Germany's Iron Youth who enter the war with high ideals and leave it disillusioned or dead. Paul watches his Second Company --150 men strong-- reduced in a single battle to 32 weary survivors."@en

  • "A group of German schoolboys are seduced into going to fight in the Great War by listening to stories of heroism and the romance of war from their elders. The boys ride off to the battlefields on the big adventure only to find themselves beaten down by the emotional and physical horrors of battle, near starvation, attacks by rats in the trenches, boredom and loneliness. When one of the boys goes home on leave he is unable to tolerate the ministrations of his mother and the pompous declarations on the state of the war from men too old to go to the Front."@en
