    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.
