All Quiet on the Western Front The book, All Quiet in the Western Front, has been a really shocking book as it shows the reader exactly what World War I had been like from a German soldier, Paul Baumer's, point of view. The writer, Erich Maria Remarque, is attempting to get across to the reader which warfare is not a fun game. War is serious. If a soldier is in a battle, he is going to find some horrible sights. The author states that the battles that the soldiers faced were dreadful. Paul Baumer had quite close school friends. His teacher Heir Kantorek persuaded Paul and his fellow classmates to return and register for the military. They moved off to boot camp then shortly after they graduated boot camp they were immediately sent into the front lines. Each time a struggle would come up, often a few of the soldiers would die. Perhaps the authors purpose was to reveal if young people today want to go until the recruiter's office, so they ought to think about what they're doing until they sign up. A smart man before going and signing up he would consider it first and discuss it over with a person that has been in a war and understands what is like to be in a warfare. Williams two Paul along with his fellow brothers in arms that are throughout the book didn't go and speak to somebody that has been in a war until they enlisted. Instead they listened to a foolish teacher stating how glorious it would be to fight for Germany. The people that went to boot camp were set through extremely hard drills with a former postman, Himmelstoss, who had became their practice instructor. Considering that the drill teacher was really difficult on the new recruits, their final day of boot camp, they snapped a bed-cover over Himmelstoss's mind and took turns beating him at the buttocks. Then they did some other.
