about this book

The stunning sequel to All Quiet on the Western Front continues the tale of World Wars I's effect upon a generation. Remarque dramatizes his conviction that "one can love one's country and at the same time believe war is not an excellent way of assuring human progress."

After four grueling years, the Great War has finally ended. Now Ernst and the few men left from his company cannot help wondering what will become of them. The town they departed as eager young men seems colder, their homes smaller, the reasons their comrades had to die even more inexplicable.

For Ernst and his friends, the road back to peace is more treacherous than they ever imagined. Suffering food shortages, political unrest, and a broken heart,  Ernst undergoes a crisis that teaches him what there is to live for--and what he has that no one can ever take away.
