Midmorning Book Club: 'All Quiet on the Western Front'
After World War I, weariness and the deaths of so many young men inspired a classic, published in 1929. The novel, "All Quiet on the Western Front," and the 1930 movie version convinced many people in Germany and around the world that World War I should be the last war.
