His landmark novel All Quiet on the Western Front (1928), based on his experience in the Imperial German Army during World War I, was an international bestseller which created a new literary genre, [further explanation needed] and was adapted to film several times.

He was able to use his literary success to relocate to Switzerland and the United States, where he became a naturalized citizen.
