Länsirintamalta ei mitään uutta

War novel by Erich Maria Remarque, Peter Eickmeyer, Robert Waterhouse

Blurb

Länsirintamalta ei mitään uutta on Erich Maria Remarquen kirjoittama ensimmäiseen maailmansotaan sijoittuva romaani. Kirja ilmestyi Saksassa vuonna 1929. Se oli hyvin suosittu, ja sitä myytiin ensimmäisen puolentoista vuoden aikana 2,5 miljoonaa kappaletta 25 eri kielellä. Aikojen kuluessa kirja on käännetty 32 kielelle, ja sitä on myyty yli kahdeksan miljoonaa kappaletta. Remarque muutti 1931, jo ennen kansallissosialistien valtaannousua, ensin Sveitsiin ja sitten Ranskaan ja myöhemmin vielä Yhdysvaltoihin, ja menetti myös Saksan kansalaisuuden 1938. Kansallissosialistit eivät hyväksyneet pasifistiseksi katsomaansa teosta, vaan teos päätyi 1933 kirjaroviolle, koska se oli ”kirjallinen petos suursodassa sotineita kohtaan”.
Kirja perustuu osittain Remarquen omiin kokemuksiin, kun hän osallistui sodan viimeisiin vuosiin Saksan armeijassa. Kirjan päähenkilöitä ovat 18-vuotiaina sotaan joutuneet Paul Bäumer, Leer, Albert, Müller, Kemmerich, Haie ja Tjaden, joiden vanhempi isähahmo on suutari Katczinsky. Kirjassa kuvataan tarkoituksettomia hyökkäyksiä ja rintamaelämän kurjaa arkea. Aluksi kuvataan koulutusvaihetta, jossa heitä kouluttaa simputtava korpraali.

This story had me laughing and crying. Couldn't put my kindle down. I could give a review on all that happens in this story but I think it will be better for any reader to just get it and plunge in. I'll be reading more from this author. If you have some great stories like this one, you can publish it on Novel Star, just submit your story to [email protected] or [email protected]

Das Buch sollte jedem klar machen, was Krieg bedeutet, und warum man ihn besser nicht führen sollte...
