The book has been called "The greatest war book that has yet been written" by Rodakteur Stohr. All Quiet on the Western Front, written by Erich Maria Remarque, is about a young German soldier named Paul Baumer who is in World War 1. The book uses many motifs, which are repeating objects or ideas. The motif of brutality teaches the reader that war is full of horror by showing that people kill other people in a way they wouldn 't anywhere else. Two examples of this are when a man’s chin gets smashed away and when Kat smashes a man 's face with the butt of this rifle.
Erich Maria Remarque was born in Osnabruck, Germany, in 1898 into a middle-class family of lower status.

Growing up, I played sports from the youngest age possible, becoming a member of a team gave me the opportunity to be a part of something larger than myself. Although I have never been in the Armed Forces, I imagine this same feeling applies to people who have, only on a much larger scale. When members of the Armed Forces are fighting for their country, all of the discrepancies about race, religion, politics all fade to the background and all that matters are the people they are surrounded by fighting for not only their lives but for the lives of those at home as well. In combat the members of our Armed Forces become a member of something larger than themselves, they become needed not only in their specific branch but also for their country as a whole.

I think that these veterans who are returning home from Iraq and other intense war missions need to be given some sort of leniency. By no means am I saying that I believe that they should be completely resolved of their crimes that they commit when they come back from war, however I do believe that it should be majorly taken into consideration that they have fought in war. The courts should look at their criminal records before they left for war, testimony from commanding officers and higher ranking military officials on their character and behavior in the military, and whether or not they successfully completed professional counseling and therapy programs when they returned from war. We ask these individuals to go fight in foreign countries
