All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front

by Erich Maria Remarque

Haie Westhus

Character Analysis

Haie is like a bull. He's a peat digger with huge hands who hails from a farm. He hates that old gig so much that he actually wants to remain in the army even after the war. He dies after being struck in the back during an attack. In an uncharacteristic act of kindness, Himmelstoss carries him to the makeshift hospital where Haie dies soon after, his lung having been exposed and damaged.
