one I simply put “The Beginning” because it pretty much only deals with introducing the soldiers and how they
chapter two “Kemmerich” because it mainly focuses on Kemmerich’s death.
chapter three “Revenge on Himmelstoss” because in the end of the chapter the Paul and his friends jumped Himmelstoss
after he got drunk at a bar. This was payback for all the horrible things he did to them during training.
four describes what fighting on the front. That’s why I called it “The Front.”
chapter five “Brothers in Arms” because it deals with Paul and Kat and their relationship as soldiers. The war
made them how they are.
six is detail about how chance plays a role in the lives of the soldiers on the front. Chance is the difference between life
and death on the front. I called the chapter “Chance”.
seven Paul returns home, but it doesn’t feel the way it used to. He wonders if he even has a real home, now. That’s
why I titled it “Home . . .?”
eight Paul guards the Russian prisoners. “The Russians” seemed like a good title.
nine is all about Paul’s experience stabbing an enemy soldier and being stuck with him for a day. He nearly goes crazy
with sorrow. “The French Soldier” should work out well.
and Kropp are taken to a hospital in chapter ten. Almost the entire chapter is about the bad things in a good hospital.
eleven describes the Germans loosing and the moral of the soldiers depleting. “Downfall” seems appropriate.
twelve is a page that describes how Paul feels without anyone. It closes the book well hence, “The End.”
