|Plot Summary of All Quiet on the Western Front|
|"Betrayed by elders in their ignorance of war, and forced to grow up in the midsts of a brutal and horrific war, Paul Baumer - the main character - enlists in World War 1. Slowly the war de-programs his analytical mind to be a mere killing machine and dehumanizes him to the point of him being a part of the lost generation that this war created. He witnesses hundreds of gory scenes and deaths of friends and comes to the realization of the futility of war. "
