The Voice of a Lost Generation

Vera Brittain (1893-1970) was born into an era steeped in Victorian/Edwardian values, but she nevertheless became an independent thinker who wanted more from her life than what was expected. Her experiences as a volunteer nurse in the First World War and the personal losses she suffered transformed her world irrevocably and played a crucial role in making her one of the most important pacifists, internationalists and feminists of the 20th Century.
