Win All Quiet On The Western Front on Blu-ray

A retelling of Erich Maria Remarque’s 1928 anti-war novel, All Quiet On The Western Front follows the story of Paul Bäumer, a young German who in 1917 joins his group of friends in volunteering for the army, with the expectation of victory and glory for the Fatherland. However, soon after arriving on the frontline, Paul and his comrades are thrust into the grim realities of trench warfare, and learn first-hand the brutal and seemingly irrational way in which the war was being waged. All the while, negotiations for an Armistice are being held, with every minute spent costing more lives lost, as the final fruitless offensives of the war are played out.
