A novel by Erich Maria Remarque, a German veteran of the First World War, in which the moral and physical sufferings of a front line soldier are depicted. The book sold in huge quantities but was subsequently banned in Nazi Germany, not least because it undermined the 'glory' of war and served as a bitter reminder of Germany's defeat.
