I soldiers dying. I feel like you will need

Ithink comradeship is more vital in a battlefield than it is in non-combat lifebecause in the battlefield you will need someone to comfort you with what isgoing on. In the battlefield you experience more harsh conditions like watchingsoldiers dying. I feel like you will need someone to help you through all thehard things that are you experiencing.            Comradeshipis a survival technique because you can always rely on each other and be therefor one another.

An example is when Paul said “We sit opposite of one another,Kat and I, two soldiers in shabby coats, cooking a goose in the middle of thenight. We don’t talk much, but I believe we have a more complete communion withone another than even lovers here.” This shows that they are closer than loversespecially since Kat is Paul’s best friend. They are truly friends.

Another exampleis “They are more than motherliness and more than fear; they are the strongest,most comforting thing there is anywhere: they are the voices of my comrades.”This shows that his comrades comfort him when he needs it. Paul’s friends also helphim keep his mind off the war and what is going on. Paul is saying that his comradesare the strongest thing there is, and they are more than a mother which isimportant to Paul.

As more and more of Paul’s close friends start to die Paul startsto change because he has no one to rely on.            Anotherexample of Paul’s friend helping him was when he said, “I am no longer ashuddering speck of existence, alone in the darkness; –I belong to them andthey to me; we all share the same fear and the same life, we are nearer thanlovers, in a simpler, a harder way; I could bury my face in them, in thesevoices, these words that have saved me and will stand by me.” This shows how Paulcares about them and how they are all going through the same thing with eachother. Paul also explains that they are nearer than lovers which must means thatare really close to each other. Another example was when Paul sat up and wasfeeling alone until he realized that Kat there. “I sit up, I feel myself strangelyalone. It’s good Kat is there.

He glazes thoughtfully at the front and says: “Mightyfine fire-works if they weren’t so dangerous.”” This means that Paul feels morecomfortable since Kat is near him.            Anexample in the book of Paul knowing his comrades is when he said, “I know theirevery step and movement; I would recognize them at any distance.” This showsthat Paul knows them well and may relate to them.

This also can help them inthe war when they are in trouble and need to find each other. Another example is”Kropp divides a cigarette and hands me half. Tjaden gives an account of hisnational dish–broad-beans and bacon. He despises it when not flavoured withbog-myrtle, and…spitting every now and then.” This shows how they are sharingwith each other which is very useful. This can help them later in the war whenthey need each other’s help. When someone needs something, they can ask eachother for stuff to assist them out.

Another example was in chapter four whenPaul was helping the recruit that was afraid by cuddling him closer because ofthe bombs that was going off. Paul was also comforting the recruits that fearedthe war and told the recruits that they’ll get used to it.            Inthe book All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, comradeship isnecessary to Paul and his friends. Comradeship is vital throughout the warbecause they can trust each other. Comradeship plays an enormous role in thewar because of how they can comfort one another. Paul and his friends had knowneach other for a long time and care for each other. With comradeship they cankeep each other’s mind off the war and be able to create laughter. Comradeshipis useful to them because they are all going through the same thing and aresuffering from the war.

As more and more soldiers die they can use comradeshipto stay strong together as a bunch. Another positive is they know each other’sweakness and strength so well that they can use the strengths when needed. Paulcan also rely and depend on his friends when he is down. Paul’s friends providehim the comfort required to continue throughout the war.

Comradeship can helpthem survive the war in the long run.
