Horror of War 
The main theme in ​
All Quiet on the Western Front​
 is the brutality of war. This theme 
comes up in every scene of the novel. This story speaks the truth about the war rather than  romanticizing it and emphasizing on the idea of the honor, patriotic duty, adventure, and glory.  All Quiet on the Western Front​

 displays the war how it really was. Using images of fear and  meaningless to replace the romantic visions of heroism. This novel focuses much on the physical  and psychological damage that war brings. In the end, almost every major character is dead. This  shows war’s horrible and devastating outcome on the young generation of men who were  recruited and forced to fight.  

One of the worst things about war is the images shown to man. Men killed by the  millions in terrifying ways. Bodies blown to pieces, limbs broken, and flesh melted from the  bones. Along with the deaths, there are many injuries that often outnumber dead men. As Paul  Baumer witnessed his friend, Franz Kemmerich’s, death in the hospital, the injuries were  terrifying and often lead to death. Kemmerich’s death was the first sign of the meaningless of life  and death in the war. The turmoil was expressed in the lines,   “Day after day goes by with pain and fear, groans and death gurgles. Even the death room I no  use anymore; it is too small.” (Remarque 19) 

Ryan 2 

In the novel and in war the men have no where to hide from bombs and bullets. Paul and  his friends must reside in dirt trenches where death surrounds them.  “We lie under the network of arching shells and live in a suspense of uncertainty. If a shot  comes, we can duck, that is all; we neither know nor can determine where it will fall.”  (Remarque 101) 

 They sleep holding their bread so no rats steal it. The dirt surrounding them turns dark as it  absorbs the blood of the fallen.  ... Show More
