Testament of youth : an autobiographical study of the years 1900-1925
Part of the Virago Modern Classics series
In 1914 Vera Brittain was eighteen 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 was 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 the period; 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.
