Summary

''Little, Brown and Company first published Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front, arguably the greatest war novel of all time, in 1929. Subsequently, the book has been translated into 45 languages and has sold more than 50 million copies. Though a fictional account, it is a timeless document of the devastation and human tragedy of World War I. The story, told from the perspective of a young German soldier, is extraordinarily detailed and realistic and thus lends itself well to the amplification of an illustrated edition. Sixty compelling, previously unpublished black-and-white photographs from the Liberty Memorial Museum in Kansas City, Missouri - the only World War I museum in the United States - are used to illustrate this classic narrative. These photographs, showing German soldiers in the trenches, gathered around the cookhouse, guarding Russian prisoners, convalescing in the hospital, and so forth - all experiences described by Remarque's thoughtful and sensitive protagonist Paul Baumer - provide a fascinating visual and historical context for this exceptional novel.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
