All Quiet On The Western Essay, Research Paper

The book, All Quiet On The Western Front, is a war novel written

about World War I. It Is written from the side of the Germans. The book

is really interesting at times and real easy to read and understand. In

the following paper you are going to read a lot that I have to say. You

might find it interesting and/or you might not even finish. Either way

this is how it goes.

The book is based on the experience that one man had while fighting

a war against the British. First of all, the guys name is Paul

Baumer. He is Only about 18 years old. Him and a bunch of his

friends all go to school together. Well, one day their teacher

persuades every guy in the class to enlist in the military and go

fight in the war. The teacher thought this was a great idea. So,

they all enlist in the war, even the guys who didn’t want to. They

end up going through training with a real jerk drill sergant. He is

very mean to them. Eventually they get him back. After training they

are sent to fight. The first one of them to die is a guy named Behm. He

was totally against the war and did not want to go in the first place.

He was shot in the eye, and left for dead. Another one of his buddies

dies too. His name is Kemmerich. He has to have his leg amputated. One

of Pauls buddies, Muller, wants and needs Kemmerich’s boots. He gets

them. Eventually a lot of other people die. It is a real sad and tragic


The story is written from the point of view of Paul. This is

really good because you can actually think and feel what Paul

is feeling. He tells the story really good and sometimes in

gruesome detail. For example, a part that sticks out in my mind

is when Paul is running toward the enemies trench, the guy who

is runnig beside him gets his head blown off by a shell. It

says that his head was blown off yet his body kept running for

a few more yards while the blood gushed from his neck. Now that

is pretty nasty in my opinion. That right there makes me not

want to go to war. He wrote the book really well. Very detailed

and descriptive. It really lets you see the war the way the way it

would have been if you were actually there. I think the book is

really good, as I have said before. If you want to learn just how bad

war is, then this is the book for you. I myself didn’t really like

reading it because it is so real and true. I hate to think that the

things written in this book are real and did happen. It is not like a

movie where you can say ” aw they’re just acting” this book is the real

thing. After reading this book I will never choose to go into the

military on my own free will. They will have to drag me every step of

the way.

Well, kinda like I said before i have learned that war is not

fun. You don’t just get to drive a tank all day and shoot

anything you want. It is not a video game. War is real people,

real death. Peoples famlies get ripped apart and peoples dreams

come crashing down. War effects everybody, not just they

people on the front lines fighting it. This book is really

good and I encourage you to read it if you like war or want to

find out more about the truth, what it is really like. If you

are thinking about joinig the military you should read this

book. It might just change your mind. Overall the book itself

is written good and easy to understand. You should read it even

if your just looking for a good story. In conclusion, I don’t

think I ever want to read a war book again. I really don’t

like to think about how all theose men died for no reason at

all. That just makes me sick. I hope you have enjoyed reading

my paper. I hope you are still here to be reading the end.
