Testament of youth : an autobiographical study of the years 1900-1925 by Vera Brittain( Book )

79 editions published between 1933 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1915 Vera Brittain abandoned her studies at Oxford to enlist as a nurse in the armed services. Before the war was over she had served in London, Malta, and close to the Western Front in France--and she had lost all the men she loved. Out of that experience came this cauterizing book, at once a memoir and an elegy for the bright, passionate generation who came of age on the eve of the war and vanished in its trenches."--Back cover
England's hour by Vera Brittain( Book )

23 editions published between 1940 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published at the height of the Second World War, "England's Hour" is Vera Brittain's account of the grim, desperate but often inspiring years, 1939-41. As "Testament of Youth" movingly showed, the First World War was to haunt Vera Brittain and when war was again declared on Germany in 1939, she feared the worst. But although during these years much was to be endured by the British, much was also to be gained. This spirit of determination is vividly captured by Vera Brittain as she describes her own personal experiences set against the dramatic events of the early war
