There can be no doubt that it was due to book reviews like the one attached here that help to explain why ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT by Erich Maria Remarque was the number one best selling book in the U.S. throughout the year 1929:

"As Homer described the beauty of Helen by its effect on the beholder, so does Remarque describe the horrors of war. And no other literary device, however gymnastic, could convince us so perfectly, could force us to participate so completely in that horror. In this book, war and the long strain of the momentary fear of death are things which reduce all life and living things to a least common denominator of existence."
