All Quiet on the Western Front Reviews

"Remarque's evocation of the horrors of modern warfare has lost none of its force" * The Times *
"Remarque is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank" * New York Times Book Review *
"There are some books that should be read by every generation... Remarque's story of German trench soldiers of the 1914-18 war gains even more authority in the context of the loss of life in wars that still rage"
"Brian Murdoch's new English translation shows that Remarque's evocation of the horrors of modern warfare has lost none of its force" * The Times *
"The book conquers without persuading, it shakes you without exaggerating, a perfect work of art and at the same time truth that cannot by doubted"
