The sequel to All Quiet on the Western Front, one of the most powerful novels of the First World War and a twentieth-century classic.
After four gruelling years the survivors of the Great War finally make their way home. Young, spirited Ernst is one. Finding himself inexplicably returned to his childhood bedroom, restless, chafing, confused, he knows he must somehow resurrect his life. But the way back to peace is far more treacherous than he ever imagined. If All Quiet on the Western Front was a lament for a lost generation, this sequel speaks with the same resonant voice for those who came back.
The is a new definitive English translation by expert Remarque translator Brian Murdoch.
