All Quiet on the Western Front

That is the title from what was arguably the greatest piece of literature to come out of the battlefields of World War 1

It is a novel by Erich Maria Remarque, a German veteran of World War I. The book describes the German soldiers’ extreme physical and mental trauma during the war, and the detachment from civilian life felt by him upon returning home from the front.

Everett has been for months a bit like the Western Front – busy with hard news, protests, allegations, law suits and assurances of more troubles to come.

For now, like on the Western Front shortly before the war came to an end, Everett’s wild ride seems to have gone cold.

In other words, All is quiet on the western front. Will the quiet hold or will the war heat up again? We shall find out soon enough.
