Discover the most famous anti-war novel ever written
In 1914 a room full of German schoolboys, fresh-faced and idealistic, are goaded by their schoolmaster to troop off to the 'glorious war'. With the fire and patriotism of youth they sign up. What follows is the moving story of a young 'unknown soldier' experiencing the horror and disillusionment of life in the trenches.

Bought to replace an aging copy that’s still around the house, but getting very fragile (cost 2/6 in old money) The book is still just as poignant as I remember, when will we ever learn .
The Great War from a young German infantryman's viewpoint, this is a moving, unflinching story of courage and comradeship, and a reflection on his home society of the time. Very re-readable.
Great book (read it following watching the film). Ordering was easy, price and delivery cost were very good and competitive, well packaged and sent in good time. And great to know that buying from the Museum also helps upkeep. Well done.
Historical classic , gritty and honest well worth reading
