* The infamous moment where they grab their portable toilets and play cards in the sunshine while they take a dump ''at the same time.''
* There's plenty of BlackComedy to be found, but the finest one is probably when Paul discovers that mortars can blow people out of their clothes, hence the half-naked corpses hanging from tree branches.

* There's one chapter where Paul describes his duties at the Russian POW camp, which is mostly sad and heartwarming...then he casually drops this line like it's nothing.
-->'''Paul:''' It's gotten so bad that they don't [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbate]] anymore, although [[TooMuchInformation usually it is so bad you get a whole regiment going at it at once.]]

* Paul and his friend, having been separated from the others during a bombardment, are both wounded by shell fragments. Having been picked up by a passing ambulance, they start to relax until they realize that in the chaos, they lost the bags of goodies (good cigars/cigarettes, meat, and snacks) they had lifted from a supply depot that morning. Somthing about the misplaced prioritization just makes the moment hilarious.

They are also bloody hilarious.
