Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other—if only he can come out of the war alive.

There are some small stain spots on the front and back covers; stain at the bottom edge of the spine; sharp corners. Tight binding. No cracks. No loose pages. The inside of the book is in great condition - clean pages with no stains or tears; name/date (1929) written in pen on front end other writing found; some very light foxing on the half title and title pages and on 2 rear blank end other foxing found.
