"Nothing in the papers, not the most vivid and heart-rending descriptions, have made me realise war like your letters."Letters from a Lost Generation is a memorable selection of letters, written during the First World War, between Vera Brittain and four young men - her fiance, Roland Leighton, her younger brother Edward and their two close friends Victor Richardson and Geoffrey Thurlow - all of whom were killed in this war.
(Vera Brittain to her fiance, Roland Leighton, 17 April 1915)
"Beautifully edited... makes almost unbearable reading."
(Times Literary Supplement)
"As the First World War slips out of living memory, this is a timely reminder of what was lost - and how we lost it."
