Still  have my paperback  copy in my library ,  I think  I read it  in senior year high school  .    I enjoyed it .  Interesting  Title  , nothing much happened except the main character  dies .   Another  unnecessary war started by  incompetent   "leaders"  with egos   and no sense  .  Four  empires  died  because of it .  Russia , the Ottoman ,   German  ,  and  Austro-Hungarian  all ruled   by   less than intellectually   distinguished    people  .  None of whom actually  built the "Empires" .  John2 .

Not sure how you can come away making that statement if you actually read the whole book Roll Eyes

I was referring to the "Title" The main character was killed so close to the end of the war after having suffered with the consequences on a Day that was described as so uneventful as "All quiet on the Western Front"  The book definitely  describes the effects of the war on the participants  both military and civilian and lack of real honest information on the conditions by the governments involved on both sides.   John2.

Thanks for clarifying as that was not clear.

The book definitely  describes...lack of real honest information on the conditions by the governments involved on both sides.   John2.

Written from the German perspective, not recalling it going into the other side of things Huh?
