"Nothing in the papers, not the most vivid and heart-rending descriptions, have made me realise war like your letters."
(Vera Brittain to her fiance, Roland Leighton, 17 April 1915)
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.
"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."
(Sunday Times)
