In my opinion, the Nazis burned Remarque's books not because he changed his name to a non-German name, but because this book is filled with anti-war sentiment cloaked as it had to be in 1928 when this was first published. To have lived through war in the trenches as Remarque did, qualifies him to speak to the insanity of mass killing that is war.
Let us all read his pages and imbibe the message of the cruelty and senselessness of war. I feel as if I want to go out and obtain a copy of every book Remarque ever published. Let his experience be our teacher; let his message endure. Let every school-kid in the world read and study these pages, so they come to know what war is. Let the decision-makers of the world pore over every passage, and ask themselves whether they will send their children to war. Let Remarque's works guide their decision.
Truly a classic.
These poor 20-year-old kids answered the call to patriotism only to learn that the soldiers on the other side were not much different than they were, and they soon realized that they were merely pawns in a game of chess played by world leaders. Dug in trenches and shell-holes on the front line, these brave soldiers relied on guile, good fortune and the unspoken fellowship among soldiers in an effort to survive from one moment to the next. These soldiers weren't fighting for the folks back home as much as their brothers in arms, and the longer they remained in the field and witnessed untold horrors, the farther removed from their pre-war life they became.
Just an excellent read that will help put the readers first-world problems into proper perspective.
