Paul, the narrator, speaks primarily in the first person. I think what you may be referring to is the fact that it is from a German point of view which, from our perspective, can be unique.
point of view · Paul, the narrator, speaks primarily in the first person, often in the plural as he describes the collective experience of the soldiers immediately around him. He switches to the first person singular as he ruminates on his own thoughts and feelings about the war. The novel switches to the third person and an unnamed narrator for the two paragraphs following Paul’s death.
