Schlump is than anti war novel It makes the charge startling for the time of its publication that despite the sacrifices made at the front and at home the German effort during the Great War was characterized by a misguided strategy and fought by soldiers who were not only poorly led but were less than heroic themselves Finally it implied the Kaiser was a coward Published at about the same time as Erich Maria Remarue s All uiet on the Western Front another anti war novel Schlump never caught on while Remarue s novel was a phenomenal successMuch of the 2d half of the novel is made up of several long stories by other soldiers Schlump the protagonist meets It s like Grimm tries to capture the brutality and suffering of the war hardships at home as well as in the trenches through a variety of experiences which reflect all experience At times I thought it approached polemic On p240 is perhaps the main theme expressed by Schlump This entire war is nothing but the cruellest vilest slaughter and if mankind can put up with such an atrocity for years or stand by and look on well it deserves nothing but contempt But he who fashioned mankind he ought to be thoroughly ashamed of himself for his creation is an utter disgrace This is counterpointed by the view of his captain a kind of ur Nazi who predicts their suffering will ensure that a leader with a superhuman soul will arise to lead Germany in uniting Europe in distinction and glory prefiguring the political atmosphere between the warsThe cover blurb of my edition suggests that Schlump the young soldier whose story this is is maybe even a new type of man To me he s as old as fiction itself though I d first seen him as a kind of blundering sad sack I came to think of him as a Sancho Panza without a Don uixote He s an optimist a man who has a native intelligence backed by resolve and resourcefulness and a belief in the basic good of humanity The trouble is I grew tired of Schlump before the end Sure he possesses all the practicality of Sancho Panza but in the end he s innocent in fact the Afterword by Volker Weidermann calls the novel a fairy tale and innocence isn t always interesting
