Overview

As Testament of Youth movingly showed, the First World War was to haunt Vera Brittain throughout her life. When Great Britain again declared war 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 years, events like the Battle of Britain and the London Blitz which were to become a part of history as 'England's Hour'.

As a young woman, V. Brittain tours Europe after WW1. She mourns the failure of the peace movement (of which she was an active participate) to prevent another war. This is an overview of her experiences in London during the first 15 months of WW11. She comments on the courage of the Londoners who work around the destruction of buildings, streets and families while going about their business. This is an interesting personal account of a specific time and place during WW11. 159 pages.

The book is excellent - certainly deserving of 5 stars.  I gave it only 4 because there are many "issues" with the Nook book.  Some of these are inappropriate word and line breaks and many stray letters, numbers and symbols throughout.    I found the book a little difficult to read because of these.  In the case of this book, a paper, hard copy would be a better choice.
