Almost done this classic:




As usual listening to it on audible and the narrator is excellent: listen to the sample. https://www.audible.com/pd/Classics/All-Quiet-on-the-Western-Front-Audiobook/B00478WP40

The book begins with these lines: "This book is to be neither an accusation nor a confession, and least of all an adventure, for death is not an adventure to those who stand face to face with it. It will try simply to tell of a generation of men who, even though they may have escaped (its) shells, were destroyed by the war."

This is one of those classics that truly are classic.
