Letters from a lost generation : the First World War letters of Vera Brittain and four friends by Vera Brittain( Recording )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If war spares me," wrote Vera Brittain to her brother, Edward, in 1916, "it will be my one aim to immortalize in a book the story of us four." Seventeen years later, Vera was to achieve her aim with the acclaimed Testament of Youth. This series of letters was the inspiration behind Testament. Written between Vera; her brother; her fiancé, Roland Leighton; and their two best friends, Victor Richardson and Geoffrey Thurlow, they give a unique perspective on the most horrifying conflict the world has ever seen. They show the heartbreaking disillusionment of an idealistic public-school generation, raised on ideas of patriotism and duty, as the reality of war emerged. Yet they also give a fascinating insight into the era as a whole: their generation's literary tastes and the place of women in society
