It has to be the defining novel of World War I told from the point of view of a German soldier fighting in the trenches of France This is not a novel of romance intrigue and adventure it is a stark and frightingly realistic description of what it must have been like trying to survive from one day to the next and almost always failing Difficult and disturbing to read it nevertheless is a narrative of how war is horrible and hopefully why the telling of it may help deter future wars

Man I need a break I ve been reading about the First World War solidly since December and I ve had enough now There s only so many times you can go through the same shit whether they re English French German Russian oh look another group of pals from school eagerly jogging down to the war office to sign up Brilliant Now it s just a matter of guessing which horrible death will be assigned to them shrapnel to the stomach bleeding to death in no man s land drowning in mud succumbing to dysentery shot for deserting bayonetted at close range vaporised by a whizz bang victim of Spanish flu It s like the most depressing drinking game everI wish after spending many months reading around this subject that I could pick out some obscure classic to recommend and perhaps I will still find some because I intend to keep reading about 1914 18 throughout 2014 18 but I have to say that this novel famously one of the greatest war novels is in fact genuinely excellent and left uite an impression on me despite my trench fatigue Remarue has the same elements as everyone else because pretty much everyone in this war went through the same godawful mind numbingly exhausting terror but he describes it all with such conviction and such clarity that I was sucker punched by the full horror of it all over againThe story is studded with remarkable incidents that linger in the mind roasting a stolen goose in the middle of a barrage for instance or stabbing a Frenchman to death in a fit of panic while sheltering in the same shell hole The arrangements made to allow a hospital inmate to enjoy a marital visit with his wife while the rest of the patients in the room concentrate on a noisy game of cards I loved the moment where our narrator and his friends swim across a river to have a drink with some local French girls arriving naked because they couldn t risk getting their uniforms wet And back in the trenches an infestation of huge rats with evil looking naked faces is described with than Biblical loathingThey seem to be really hungry They have had a go at practically everybody s bread Kropp has wrapped his in tarpaulin and put it under his head but he can t sleep because they run across his face to try and get at it Detering tried to outwit them he fixed a thin wire to the ceiling and hooked the bundle with his bread on to it During the night he puts on his flashlight and sees the wire swinging backwards and forwards Riding on his bread there is a great fat ratThere is also a fair bit of philosophising While guarding a group of Russian prisoners of war our narrator is overcome by the arbitrariness of the whole situationAn order has turned these silent figures into our enemies an order could turn them into friends again On some table a document is signed by some people that none of us knows and for years our main aim in life is the one thing that usually draws the condemnation of the whole world and incurs its severest punishment in law How can anyone make distinctions like that looking at these silent men with their faces like children and their beards like apostles Any drill corporal is a worse enemy to the recruits any schoolmaster a worse enemy to his pupils than they are to us I don t want to lose those thoughts altogether I ll preserve them keep them locked away until the war is over Is this the task we must dedicate ourselves to after the war so that all the years of horror will have been worthwhileI found this uote and this resolution very moving because Germany s post war history rendered it so utterly futile When the Nazis came to power in 1933 just four years after this was published they set about burning the book which tended to be their first response to any problem While Ernst J nger s vision of a German people purified and hardened by the war was venerated poor guy Remarue s text was denounced as an insult to the German soldier He took the hint and sailed to the US in 1939 The German state in what amounted to a fit of piue cut his sister s head off instead and then billed what was left of his family for wear and tear to the bladeSo as can t be said enough fuck them The insights that Remarue and Barbusse and Sassoon and Genevoix and Manning found in extremis of the essential commonality of human beings are we like to think now accepted by society over the alternatives despite what we sometimes have to infer from the content of our newspapersWith all of that said this is a novel It is not a memoir Remarue only spent a month on the front lines whereas J nger who apparently had the time of his life was there for yearsThis 1994 translation from Brian Murdoch is excellent and reads entirely naturally he also contributes a thoughtful and unassuming essay which finally a publisher that gets it is helpfully placed as an Afterword so as not to spoil the novel itself All in all a very powerful and moving piece of writing if I had to recommend just one contemporary novel from the First World War

The greatest war novelMaybeThis was one of the first books that made me think that even though I wanted to be a writer someday maybe I did not have what it takes This was a sharp swift kick in the gut a none too subtle reminder that there are somber very real and poignant moments captured in literature that escape petty categorization and cynicism there are real moments that cannot be trivialized and placed on a genre specific bookshelf Powerful 2018 This book as a war novel is cautionary No doubt there are those novels that glorify and even romanticize battles and there are others whose goal it is to revel in the martial experience Remarue though has crafted a simple story that focuses instead on the individual and how this ugly time affects his life In doing so Remarue declares the value of that individual life in all life and shines a discerning damning light on war
