In 1947, after eight successful years in the United States, Remarque became a U.S. citizen. During World War I he was drafted into the German army at the age of 18. After the war he tried various occupations and in his spare time wrote the antimilitaristic All Quiet on the Western Front (1929) that became a classic of modern warfare but was condemned as "defeatist" by the Nazis.The Road Back (1931) is the sequel. His later novels deal with World War II; they have had greater popularity than critical success.
