Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive.

He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.

"Written during the last years of the Weimar Republic, the two novels collected here address the urgent problems of that age. Both Erich Maria Remarque (1898-1970) and Joseph Roth (1894-1939) served in World War I, Remarque with the German army and Roth with the Austrian. Their experiences would help define what Gertrude Stein referred to as the "Lost Generation." All Quiet on the Western Front is the testimony of a soldier who had become aware of how much he, and those of his generation who had survived, had been affected by the trauma of the Great War. For Joseph Roth, World War I had cost him his homeland and turned him into a nomad. Job, in abridged form for The German Library, addresses the theme of Jewish identity in a newly mobilized society."--Jacket.
