Testament Of Youth Summary

Testament Of Youth: An Autobiographical Study of the Years 1900-1925 by Vera Brittain

With a new introduction by her biographer, Mark Bostridge.

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.

About Vera Brittain

Vera Brittain (1893-1970) grew up in the north of England. At the end of the war she moved to Oxford where she met Winifred Holtby, author of South Riding. Brittain was a convinced pacifist, a prolific speaker, lecturer, journalist and writer. She devoted much of her energy to the causes of peace and feminism.

She wrote 29 books in all: novels, poetry, biography and autobiography, and other non-fiction, but it was Testament of Youth which established her reputation and made her one of the best loved writers of her time.
