This is the best war novel I ve ever read I m not sure how much that s saying about me or the book since I haven t exactly read a great many war novels I ve been on a World War I jag lately which should not be misinterpreted as READING a great many books about WW I Rather I have been BUYING a great many books about World War I All uiet on the Western Front is a book I ve owned about 25 years and this was actually my second try at reading it The only reason I know this is that I noticed upon reading that it had passages underlined ending on page 64 I remembered nothing of what I d read couldn t recall ever trying to read the novel Senescence is a cruel afflictionWhy was this the best war novel I ve ever read Well the book told the truth It was the truth of the author but I suspect it is a truth shared by many infantry soldiers who ve been engaged in trench warfare or any close combat There are exceptions to this Ernst Junger fought in the trenches much longer than Erich Remarue and was wounded nine times yet he wrote an account of The Great War very different in some ways than Remarue s Remarue survived the war but came away with a damaged psyche and horrific memories that fortunately he was able to rise above to become a successful novelist I think his writing actually helped exorcise his demons from the war Junger saw the war as a patriotic struggle and a test of his mettle That is he saw or created a purpose for the war with the ultimate purpose being victory for Germany and personal victory which reuired that he stay alive Interestingly Adolph Hitler was another who apparently enjoyed the perils of fighting in The Great War This is not an indication though that Junger and Hitler were similar men Junger despised Hitler from all accounts I have readRemarue has courage even while admitting to being scared as anyone would be while being fired upon by artillery shells mustard gas and aerial bombardments But his view of The Great War is far different He views the war as pointless and futile and the work of a group of old men who won t have to fight who decide based on shaky or spurious pretexts that suddenly this nationality is our enemy another is our friend Remarue s thinking was in line with the Bob Dylan song Only a Pawn in their Game Soldiers were cannon fodder and when they died as they freuently did other recruits were brought in as cannon fodder young boys of 19 many who enlisted at the urging of their schoolmasters men who would not have to sleep standing up in a trench as bombs dropped around them and lice ate them and rats battled for their bread Whenif the war ended it was because these same gray eminences met again in some far off city and signed pieces of paper saying that despite all the carnage the nations were once again friendsHuman instinct propelled survival and experience in battle and taught one the skills to survive though in Remarue s world even survival skills were often trumped by sheer luck Old heads could talk of duty to the Fatherland but all war really meant to the combatants was a fight for reasons they could not understand created by powerful men in faraway rooms who signed documents allowing men to commit atrocities that under normal circumstances would have led them to the gallows or the firing suad I m a bit torn over whether Remarue s war experiences are universal or whether they reflect his particular personality or the particular war he was fighting WW I was a gruesome protracted conflict It probably could have been fought at the negotiation table as internecine European suabbles are settled nowadays No doubt it was easy for the common foot soldier on all sides to forget that the war started because an heir apparent to the throne of a dying empire was shot by a Bosnian youth who wanted his country free from the yoke of this decaying empire Ironically he killed a man and his wife who were sympathetic to his causePerhaps as General Sherman said War is hell and is hell under any conditions but especially hell for a soldier on the front lines in a ground war I have heard interviews with fighter pilots and Navy SEALS among other elite forces where the retired soldiers said they missed the war and there was never a time when they felt alive than when fighting in battle It appears that some revel in the conflicts and get a thrill from combat though I m guessing that a great many upon reflection might hold a view closer to Remarue s and a great many if you got them under the hot lights might allow that war has its downsides tooPerhaps in wars like WW II where soldiers on the allied side had a real sense of purpose such dissonance as Remarue felt was far less common Perhaps if soldiers can be convinced of the necessity of the war then doubts a combatant might harbor can be dispelled I suspect though that combatants in most wars are battling demons with varying degrees of success after experiencing the horrors of war
