As the war is coming to an end in Chapter 12, Paul thinks that the end of the war will not be the end of the problems for his generation. He thinks that the horrors of the war will stay with them and affect them forever.
Paul thinks his generation will be so traumatized by what they have seen and done that they will be like living corpses -- there will be no survivors of the war. He worries that the soldiers will not really know what to do when the war is over -- that they will forget how to be normal people with normal goals.
