Four years later her life - and the life of her whole generation - had changed in a way that would have been 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 those agonising years; 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, and has lost none of its power to shock, move and enthral readers since its first publication in 1933.Hide synopsis

A bit dated (naturally) so some of the references to current events in England will be obscure to most readers, but otherwise evokes an erie spirit of foreboding and loss among the survivors of the lost generation. War scenes are among the best I've read.
