Ten astounding books about World War I

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Molly Schoemann-McCann tagged ten "books [that] will amaze and educate readers as we remember World War I on its centennial," including:

One of the most critically acclaimed war novels in existence, this viscerally realistic portrait of service in the German trenches during the First World War is seen through the eyes of a young man who quickly loses his enthusiasm for battle and struggles to hold onto his humanity. If you’ve long been meaning to read this renowned classic, what better year than the hundredth anniversary of what was referred to, even then, as the Great War?
