All Quiet on the Western Front (or Im Westen nichts Neues in the original German) is a 1929 novel by Erich Maria Remarque, inspired by his experiences during the first World War. The book was first translated into English in 1930 (and received its first film treatment that year) and is considered a classic example of the anti-war novel, as the narrator character Paul reflects on the brutal and dehumanizing nature of combat.
