Virago classic non-ficti, Biography: general, Biography: historical, political & military, Prose: non-fiction, First World War

To mark the centenary of the end of the first world war, Virago reissue an anniversary edition - with a new introduction by Mark Bostridge - of the testament that has become one of the most famous autobiographies of the first world war - much filmed, much studied and much loved.

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.
