9780006357032: Testament of Youth: An Autobiographical Study of the Years 1900-1925

This classic memoir of the First World War is now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington. Includes an afterword by Kate Mosse OBE.

In 1914 Vera Brittain was 20, and as war was declared she was preparing to study at Oxford. Four years later her life - and the life of her whole generation - had changed in a way that would have been unimaginable in the tranquil pre-war era.

TESTAMENT OF YOUTH, one of the most famous autobiographies of the First World War, is Brittain's account of how she survived those agonising years; how she lost the man she loved; how she nursed the wounded and how she emerged into an altered world. A passionate record of a lost generation, it made Vera Brittain one of the best-loved writers of her time, and has lost none of its power to shock, move and enthral readers since its first publication in 1933.

Product Description:

In 1915 Vera Brittain abandoned her studies at Oxford to enlist as a nurse in the armed services. She served in a number of World War theatres - in London, Malta and at the western front in France. By the war's end, all those close to her were dead, and she had witnessed the results of modern combat, the destruction and the suffering. Focusing on the men and women who came of age as the war broke out, Brittain explores their politics, hopes and the fatal idealism.
