Testament of Youth

Now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Hayley Atwell, and Taron Egerton!

In 1915 Vera Brittain abandoned her studies at Oxford to enlist as a nurse in the armed forces, serving in London, in Malta, and at the Western Front in France. By war’s end, all those closest to her were dead, and she had witnessed firsthand the destruction and suffering of modern combat.

“[Testament of Youth] remains one of the most powerful and widely read war memoirs of all time.” —The Guardian (London)
