E. M. Remarque "Three Comrades": a summary of chapters I-VII
The war (World War I) has long ended. Germany is in an economic crisis. Both souls and destinies of people are completely crippled. Three comrades at school, and then at the front - Gottfried Lenz, Robert Lokman, Otto Kester - work in the same workshop. They do car repairs. Robert has a birthday, he turns 30years. He recalls his past: his childhood and school years, the call to war in 1916, the wounding of Kester, the death of many fellow soldiers. In 1919 there was a putsch. Both of Robert's friends are arrested. Next - inflation and hunger. Returning home, Robert changed several professions: he was first a student, worked as a pilot, then as a racer, and, in the end, bought his own car repair shop. Friends became his partners. The profit is small, but allows you to live more or less normally. However, the past does not let go of comrades. They find oblivion in vodka. Lenz and Kester got a few bottles of rum, but they will celebrate the holiday after work. Friends bought an old car and equipped it with a powerful engine. They drove their "Karl" to the track to have fun: they let expensive cars pass, and then easily overtook them. When friends stopped to order dinner, a Buick pulled up to them. The passenger of the car turned out to be Patricia Holman. She took part in a fun feast. Robert rents a furnished room in a boarding house. After the holiday, he returns there. Among his neighbors are Count Orlov, the wife of Hasse, Georg Blok, who dreams of becoming a student. They are all very different, but they help each other as best they can.
