CHRONICLE OF YOUTH: A Great War Diary, 1913-1917. Vera Brittain, a renowned British pacifist, feminist, author & journalist. Romance and moving descriptions of battle scenes. Her fiance & friends are killed. CLEARANCE sale

Click to Enlargeby Vera Brittain and edited by Alan Bishop. Vera Brittain, a renowned British pacifist, feminist, author, journalist, and lecturer, maintained a copious diary from 1913 to 1917. This is that diary. World War One. It traces the blossoming of romance in the carefree summer of 1913, with earnest discussion about the purpose of life and the nature of God, but not about war. After war is declared in 1914, the diary's blissful period darkens rapidly. Her fiance, two close friends, and her only brother are killed in the war. Vera goes from knitting helmets and bandaging classes to abandoning her studies at Oxford to train as a nurse. She spends the remainder of the war nursing war-wounded men, among them German prisoners. Her diary, written in London, Malta, and France, contains moving descriptions of battle scenes, of nursing dying men, of her own struggle to endure and overcome her losses. It provides a poignant insight into the mind of this generous-hearted girl who was to become a beacon of the British pacifist movement. Softcover. 379 pages. B/w photos.
