As a youth Dieter always looked up to Hitler as if he was always honest and right but as he progresses in the story he soon learns that it was all a mistake and that his partner in the war Corporal Shafuer was right and that Hitler was only trying to take over the world instead of making it better. In Spence’s (Spencer) case he went through basic training and was shipped all over the US until he finally was deployed to an English base just outside of the war afraid that he will miss the war before he finally gets into action. As both boys go through the war Spencer being only seventeen and Dieter only being sixteen they start to realize what they could have done instead of go to war how their families and home life seemed so good compared to sleeping in foxholes in the middle of a European winter wondering if they will live to see the next day.
If America was truly angry about Germany harming innocent civilians, why did not the declaration of war follow the sinking of the Lusitania immediately? To say that America has to go to war against Germany because of the Lusitania is like saying a person fighting her best friend over something that happened two years ago which the person herself had provoked. It is not a valid reasoning to which why war is unavoidable, because it is
Because of all this, the young men of Germany enlist in the army the moment they turn eighteen. They do not stop and consider whether they agree with the reasons for the war being fought but enter blindly into the war with glorified ideas of bravery and patriotism. “But what I would like to know…is whether there would have been a war if the Kaiser had said No…well, if not him alone, then perhaps if twenty or thirty people in the world had said No. (Remarque 203)” Nothing could prepare them for the horrors of the war. Once they enter the war, the soldiers stop and consider the reasons for it being fought and whether it could have been prevented.
If a jew tried to escape, they would just get shot. The Nazis were instructed by hitler to have no mercy or feelings towards the jews.

Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, some conspiracy theorists believe that the deliberate extermination of 6 million Jews in the Nazi concentration camps is simply a conspiracy intended to discredit Hitler. They do not deny that Jews were interned in prison camps during World War II but argue that the number of deaths was greatly exaggerated. They say that the pictures of emaciated people and bodies stacked like cord wood were actually of Poles and Germans who died of typhus rather than being the victims of mistreatment. They maintain that gas chambers were just a rumor. To buy into this revisionist view one would need to discount the mountain of pictorial and first-hand witness evidence available, but that’s never stood in the way
I am as bitter against conscripts as you are against Germans. I'd kill a man with my own hand who has been made to fight for his country, after 3 1/2 years of war I’d rather kill him than any German, including the Kaiser as much as I'd like to get his wrist watch, as a souvenir. I'd like you to come over here, just for one night to see the illuminations that light the sky, it is as if its Guy Fawke’s everyday. Star shells, flare lights, rockets, search lights

Zimmerman wanted to create an undercover alliance between Germany and Mexico. This secret
