AllQuiet .onthe · Western ·Front ERICH MARIA REMARQUE Translated from the German by A. W. _WHEEN ·Fawcett Columbine • New York
Erich Maria Remarque about us. One of us will say: "Well, boys ...." Or "It. was a near thing that time...." And for a mo-ment we fall silent. There is in each of us a feel-ing of constraint. We are all sensible of it· it ' needs no words to communicate it. It might eas- . ily have happened that we should not be sitting here on our boxes to-day; it came damn near to that. And so everything is new and brave, red poppies and good food, cigarettes and summer breeze.
