“The story follows teenagers Paul Baumer and his friends Albert and Muller, who voluntarily enlist in the German Army, riding a wave of patriotic fervor that quickly dissipates once they face the brutal realities of life on the front lines. Paul’s preconceived ideas about the enemy and the rights and wrongs of the conflict soon crumble.
