Top twenty famously banned books

At the Telegraph Felicity Capon and Catherine Scott tagged twenty top famously banned books, including:
All Quiet on the Western Front
by Erich Maria Remarque

Written by a veteran of the First World War, this unflinching portrayal of the brutality of the conflict was banned by the Nazi government in 1933 for its apparently unfavourable portrayal of German military forces. It remains one of the most respected and renowned works of fiction on World War I.

All Quiet on the Western Front is among Justin Go's ten favorite works about The First World War and Molly Schoemann-McCann's top ten books about World War I.
