All Quiet on the Western Front is a book written by Erich Maria Remarkque It was a book written to reflect the human cost of war It shows us how war has a hidden face that most people do not see until it is too late In the novel he describes a group of young men who at first think war is glorious But as the war drags on the group discovers how war is not all it is set out to be As the war went on they saw their friends either die or be permanently wounded Then the end comes when there was only one person left All Quiet on the Western Front takes place in Germany where a group of young boys are first encouraged to join the military Thinking that it would be a great adventure they enlisted not knowing the fate that lies before them At first the group is sent to training They arent in a serious mood thinking that war conditions arent as bad as they really are When the boys are sent to the front it is only then when they start to realize how war is not great This is when the boys are cramped into the trenches Some of the soldiers were shell-shocked because of the constant bombardment When one of the boys was wounded he was taken to a hospital where there were many wounded soldiers Some soldiers had to have parts of their bodies amputated in order to survive When Kemmerich was in the hospital Mller ask for his pair of boots The boots was a visible reminder to the boys of the cost of war Paul then has to face his own conscience when he kills one of the Frenchmen He doesnt see the face of an enemy but just a face of another human being He tries to comfort himself by promising to help the fallen soldiers
