Publisher's summary

Getrieben von den Hetzreden ihres Lehrers Kantorek melden sich Paul Bäumer und seine Klassenkameraden freiwillig für den Kriegsdienst. In den Schützengräben der Westfront erleben sie hautnah und brutal die Sinnlosigkeit und das Grauen des Krieges.

Die Lesung von August Diehl öffnet uns Augen und Ohren, wenn sie ungekürzt und in bestechender Einfachheit alles einer Stimme überlässt - einzigartig ergreifend und immer wieder hochgelobt.

Ausgezeichnet

Really good book, story, and opportunity to improve your German, if you're not a native speaker. Heartrending portrait of the physical and spiritual desolation of the Great War.

Perfect narration for a beautiful, powerful work

The narrator matches the style of the prose perfectly with a tender, measured, gravitas that enhances the emotional impact of the story.

Well done.

In the West - Nothing New

One of the great 20th Century anti-war novels is also just a great novel. The narrator was perfect. One of the best Audible stories I have heard.
