Terms in this set (5)
Why is it ironic that Paul and his comrades refer to themselves as "stone-age veterans" when they compare themselves to the new recruits?
They are only about a year older and only a few months more on the front than the new recruits.
Descrive Katczinsky. What is his special talent?
Katczinsky is very street smart. In Civilian Life he is a cobbler, but understands most trades. His special talent is he is able to find food anywhere.
What is Kat's philosophy of war? What is Kropp's philosophy of war? What is the author's intention in expounding these?
Kat's philosophy of war is that the hierarchical organization (and pay) of the army drags the war on unnecessarily. Kropp's philosophy of war is if you could just set the two leaders to fight and then declare the winner's country the winner of the war, war would be more just because the "right" people would do the fighting. The author's intention in expounding is to point out that innocent men fight the war of nations and that spending so much time fighting for a cause causes men to think deeply about why they are fighting.
What is Kropp's philosophy concerning power given to insignificant men?
Since they are insignificant, power is abused when given.
Who is coming to the Front? Why do these men strongly anticipate his arrival?
Himmelstoss is coming to the Front. The men anticipate his arrival because of the way that he mistreated them in the barracks - especially the bed-wetter - Tjaden.
