Scene 36

Scene 36

  • Paul's father brings Paul to the beer garden so he and his friends can salute Germany's heroic son.
  • One of the gentlemen pulls out a map and shows Paul what must be done if the Germans are to win the war swiftly—basically the equivalent of a Sunday couch coach.
  • Paul contends the war looks much different at home than on the front line, but the gentleman continue to argue over how to end the war. Paul just leaves.
