Product Description:

"Won't you join up, Comrades?" Kantorek, a schoolteacher, addresses his class of young men. Those days seem long ago to Paul Bumer and his classmates, all of whom enlisted in the German army of World War I. Although they are hardly twenty years of age, in a matter of time the fighting, death, and poor living conditions around them have aged them well beyond their years. Paul remains close to his classmates and they find a few other good friends in the army. Time after time, their unit is called up to the front, and they are forced to deal with the horrors of bombardments on their trenches, the shells, the gas, and the death of so many comrades. This book is a very vivid account of a war where young men of the same generation but different uniforms were forced to grow up early in the war. - Melissa

Publisher Description:

This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches.

Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive.

What objectionable content is contained in this book? I am specifically seeking info about language or sexual content. I realize it will contain violence.

BEST ANSWER: From Squeaky Clean Reviews - Some men tease another about the potential size of his girl back home based on a comment he made; his reaction is to grin at the attention. Another says that he'd like to find a "buxom dame", go straight to bed, and stay there for a week. Three soldiers, including the main character, swim nude in front of three women and rendezvous with them that night (the most we see of that is kissing). Four men check out a poster featuring a gorgeous girl and tear off the man in the image in a sort of jealousy. One man at one point laments a lack of "girls from an officer's brothel".
It's said that "when a man gets his wife again after such a long time, if at all possible, the man wants something more [than just seeing her] besides." One soldier receives advice about where he can take his visiting wife undisturbed. The same group giving him advice later covers for the couple, standing guard, propping him up (as he is wounded), making noise to mask theirs - all whilst being in the same room and simply looking away.
Conditions for a group of prisoners have become so bad that it's mentioned that they don't masturbate any more.
