Bürger und Soldaten 1918 deals with the first few days after the German Republic was proclaimed: a historical transition period when anything appears possible. The plot focuses on the severely injured former soldier and classicist Friedrich Becker, a man deeply disturbed by the Great War who asks after the meaning of his life and the possibility of lasting peace.

’With this monumental exile work, Döblin reached the summit of his creativity in the field of the historical novel.’
Gabriele Sander, Kindlers Literatur Lexikon
