Overall I enjoyed both the book all quite on the western front and the video they shall not grow old. Although I believe they do have a lot in common they both deglamorize the war and give more of a real perspective. Although I think the book was more real and Honest about the true pain and suffering in the war . I personally felt like the video was more impactful even though they were actors being able to view it made more of a picture in my mid. Imagining it made better understand happened and tell what they were truly going through.
