A beautiful gift edition of this classic memoir of the First World War. Will contain a foreword by Kate Mosse OBE.

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.

Industry Reviews

'Like the much-misunderstood poppy, Testament both memorializes and warns... to remain uninformed is actually life-threatening.'

'it was a surprise to pick her book up now and discover how very good it is.'
Diana Athill, The Guardian

'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

'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
