Now Ernst and the few men left from his company cannot help wondering what will become of them. The town they departed as eager young men seems colder, their homes smaller, the reasons their comrades had to die even more inexplicable. For Ernst and his friends, the road back to peace is more treacherous than they ever imagined. Suffering food shortages, political unrest, and a broken heart, Ernst undergoes a crisis that teaches him what there is to live for--and what he has that no one can ever take away.Hide synopsis

If you are in to German history, especially WWI-WWII, you need to read this book and all of Remarque's works. No one brings it down to the human experience like Erich, especially when you consider the fact that you start rooting for the Germans, or least sympathizing with them in terms of some of the things the Allies did to them. This is good, but please read his "A Time to Love, and a Time to Die", if you truly want a German perspective of the Eastern Front during WWII. All of these works are incredible and no one reads them anymore.
