All Quiet On The Western Front Study Guides

  • All Quiet on the Western Front


    All Quiet on the Western Front is a story of combat fatigue, mental stress, and the horrors of war as a frontline soldier. It tells the story of Paul Baumer, a soldier in the German Army during World War I. Paul endures the grisly slog of the war while his friends die one by one, eroding Paul's self-confidence and desire for life. The novel firmly establishes the insignificance of the individual in the theater of war.
