NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

With an introduction by her biographer, Mark Bostridge.

'Remains one of the most powerful and widely read war memoirs of all time' GUARDIAN

'Vera Brittain's heart-rending account of the way her generation's lives changed is still as shocking and moving as ever' STELLA MAGAZINE, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

'A heartbreaking account of the impact of the First World War on a stout-hearted, high-minded young woman' SUNDAY TIMES

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Remains one of the most powerful and widely read war memoirs of all time * Guardian *
Vera Brittain's heart-rending account of the way her generation's lives changed is still as shocking and moving as ever -- Stella Magazine * Sunday Telegraph *
A heartbreaking account of the impact of the First World War on a stout-hearted, high-minded young woman * Sunday Times *
Like the much-misunderstood poppy, Testament both memorializes and warns ... to remain uninformed is actually life-threatening * Times Literary Supplement *
Sublimely moving ... this is a truly great book ... should be compulsory reading for the nation's debauched and aimless yobs and yobettes -- Val Hennessy * Daily Mail *
Essential reading, not just as an anti-war polemic but as a portrait of a whole generation of young people who were totally ill-prepared and whose lives were utterly changed within four momentous years * Historical Novels Review *
