Vera Brittain: A Life Summary


A biography of the author of "Testament of Youth", a biography of the Great War. Vera Britain's uncompromizing pacifism in World War II led to her courageous but unpopular condemnation of the Allies' saturation of Germany. Written with the co-operation of her daughter Shirley Williams, this biography draws on unpublished letters and reminiscences to illuminate the life and personality of a courageous and complex woman. The book reveals new facts about her brother's death in the trenches and about her relationship with Ronald Leighton and it throws new light on her semi-detached marriage, her friendship with Winifred Holtby and her combative personality.
