H. Seidel Canby (1878 - 1961) was one of the founding editors of THE SATURDAY REVIEW OF LITERATURE and in this article he put pen to paper and presented his readers with a concise summation of what he liked to call "the five phases" of war literature. Canby sensed that since 1919 there had been five unique types of war books, all produced by veterans, and that Erich Maria Remarque's (1898 1970) ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT was typical of the fifth variety that was appearing in 1929:

"The balance hangs true in Remarque. Pacifism is a theory, militarism is a theory, war is a necessity - not in its causes, for who really hates the enemy! - but for this doomed generation it is a fact. War for these men is normal, which does not mean that they like it."
