All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

vintage

Many critics label this novel as “The Greatest War Novel of All Time”. I can see why. It’s Paul Bäumer’s testament of losing his childhood innocence alongside his classmates in the German trenches of WWI. Remarque paints powerful, yet seemingly simple images and draws you believably into Bäumer’s tragic world. I found this account of the Great War’s atrocities vivid, moving, and unforgettable.
