The novel Im Westen Nichts Neues (All Quiet on the Western Front) by the internationally very succesful German author Erich Maria Remarque (1898-1970), a veteran of World War I, describes the German soldiers' extreme physical and mental stress during the war, and the detachment from civilian life felt by many of these soldiers upon returning home from the front. The novel was first published in November and December 1928 in the German newspaper Vossische Zeitung and in book form in late January 1929. The book and its sequel Der Weg zurück (The Road back), published 1930, were among the books banned and burned in Nazi Germany. All Quiet on the Western Front sold 2.5 million copies in 22 languages in its first 18 months in print.
