Reviews

Remains one of the most powerful and widely read war memoirs of all time
*Guardian*

Vera Brittain's heart-rending account of the way her generation's lives changed is still as shocking and moving as ever
*Sunday Telegraph*

A heartbreaking account of the impact of the First World War on a stout-hearted, high-minded young woman
*Sunday Times*

Like the much-misunderstood poppy, Testament both memorializes and warns ... to remain uninformed is actually life-threatening
*Times Literary Supplement*

Sublimely moving . . . this is a truly great book . . . should be compulsory reading for the nation's debauched and aimless yobs and yobettes
*Daily Mail*

Essential reading, not just as an anti-war polemic but as a portrait of a whole generation of young people who were totally ill-prepared and whose lives were utterly changed within four momentous years
*Historical Novels Review*
