Reviews

"'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||"'There are some books that should be read by every generation. The latest translation and republication of 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 from Bosnia to Kashmir' Chris Searle"||"'The book conquers without persuading, it shakes you without exaggerating, a perfect work of art and at the same time truth that cannot be doubted' Stefan Sweig"
