Michael Roberts is the Book Leader for All is Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

Book Twelve is considered by many the greatest war novel of all time. It is All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. Paul Bäumer knew nothing of life but despair, death, fear over what he called an abyss of sorry. Despite this experience at age 24, Paul maintains his vow to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits men of one generation against men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another.
