Für die anderen war es ein Krieg, um den Krieg zu beenden. Aber außer dem Gedenken an die grausamen Kämpfe des Ersten Weltkrieges ist uns heute eines geblieben: Ein Roman, der die unbarmherzigsten Bilder wiedergibt - Im Westen nichts Neues. Die Dokumentation aus der Reihe Great Books wirft einen Blick auf die Schrecken und unmenschlichen Folgen des Krieges.
