I used this book to help me with my English Literature AS coursework. It is really useful with in depth chapter analysis, character profiles, key quotes, key themes, historical context and critical interpretations - buy it!!!

Erich Maria Remarque did a great job with his story. Being first person in view gave you the feeling that you were there. To add to this he is a very good writer.
Not being in the Great War, I can only imagine the technology of the time and trust in old war movies. Also this is a foreign culture in a foreign time. People there had a tendency to trust and respect their elders unquestionably.
Being of the Vietnam era I could however relate to the parts about the different personalities and some of the war situations and attitudes. I could appreciate the river crossing at night and the defending of the deserted town. I even liked the cat that they befriended in the story. We had a dog that was named Followme, which was one of the few that did not end up in a pot. I even could feel the anxiety of not fighting and just waiting for action. The only major difference is the question of do you want the people to be behind you to push you on or cheer you on, or doing the same job with people that are indifferent or not supportive?
Anyway even with the graphic description of the actual battle is more of a description of war, not a reason to sue for peace at any cost. The story is more of a, "don't let someone pull the wool over your eyes," with the talk of the glory of war. A movie with that theme is "The Americanization of Emily (1964)" . Also don't let Authority blindly lead you into the army with the condos as in the movie, Private Benjamin (1980) .
This is not the end but the key statement that pretty much sums it up, "He fell in October 1918, on a day that was so quiet and still on the whole front, that the army report confined itself to the single sentence: All quiet on the western Front."

Book arrived in the time scale advertised and it was the book I ordered. I agreed the price when I bought it and that's what I paid. So what exactly is to review? I imagine you don't want a review of the book, which is a review of another book anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Cliffs Notes on All Quiet on the Western Front 6 Aug. 2009
By Bernie - Published on Amazon.com
I have to admit that I read the Cliff Notes after I read the book twice and saw all three movies. However, the notes are still helped with understanding points that were not previously stresses. Knowing more about the Author helps in see why he chose the perspective. Keep in mind that any conclusions drawn in the notes are those of Sudan Van Kirk. After reading this supplement you may want to re read the book. The notes include:
. Life and Background of the Author
. Genera; Plot summary
. Remarque's Introductory Note
. Critical Commentaries
. Remarque's Style
. Remarque as a Social Critic
. Character Analyses
. Questions for Review
"He fell in October 1918, on a day that was so quiet and still on the whole front, that the army report confined itself to the single sentence: All quiet on the western Front."

Read this as a young man before my Asian experience. Read it again at age 65 -- it is just spot on. Combat does things to people and as this novel shows it is really a shared experience that all vets can relate to. If this is true, then as a non-combatant I hope you can take this story and learn something.
