ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT - Erich Maria Remarque

'This book is intended neither as an accusation nor as a confession, but simply as an attempt to give an account of a generation that was destroyed by the war – even those of it who survived the shelling.' - Erich Maria Remarque

Featuring an introduction by Sebastian Faulks, our WWI centenary edition of All Quiet On The Western Front is Quarter Bound with white cloth.

The idea behind the design comes from the line ‘The front is as sinister as a whirlpool’. The book is a testament to the pity, horror and waste of the First World War, and a passionate plea to prevent its repetition.

Below the final cover are some previous jackets, which help show the progression from start to finish.
