The ongoing conflicts between the returning soldiers with their horror of what they have been through and those who have not seen it produces a harrowing book that really ought to be compulsory reading - particularly for Germans!
Having recently visited the Somme just after Armistice day, the image stays with me of the biggest German cemetery where the only wreath was from the British Legion.
The translation is old and pretty clunky - but you soon don't notice as the intensity of the book eats into you.
The collapse of the currency and the re-emergence of German militarism appear toward the end of the book and our knowledge of what happened next makes your blood run cold.
Maybe if more Germans had read it they would not be so keen now to put other European Countries to the economic sword in the way they appear to be doing.
But if more people had read it then Hitler would never have got where he did!
A MUST READ!!!

This was a kindle purchase so it was delivered straightaway, the book is very good. I have read another by the same author.Published on 8 May 2014 by TJB
This sequel to All quiet on the Western Front is often, undeservedly, forgotton.
It describes the experiences of the survivors in a accessible yet intelligent manner.
