Testament of Youth by Vera BrittainMuch of what we know and feel about the First World War we owe to Vera Brittains elegiac yet unsparing book, which set a standard for memoirists from Martha Gellhorn to Lillian Hellman. Abandoning her studies at Oxford in 1915 to enlist as a nurse in the armed services, Brittain served in London, in Malta, and on the Western Front. By wars end she had lost virtually everyone she loved. Testament of Youth is both a record of what she lived through and an elegy for a vanished generation. Hailed by the Times Literary Supplement as a book that helped “both form and define the mood of its time,” it speaks to any generation that has been irrevocably changed by war.

By Sarah Crompton. At one end of the room, a film crew is engaged in crowd replication — a painstaking technique whereby if you move small numbers of people around a space and repeatedly film them, you can create the impression of a much larger group. It is a labour of love for all concerned. Brittain, the mother of Shirley Williams , leading light of the Liberal Democrats, was preparing to study at Oxford when war broke out. She had struggled long and hard against her conventional, well-heeled family to get to Somerville the college for which, in the new film, Trinity stands in , teaching herself Greek and sitting the entrance exam without the benefit of coaching.

The film stars Alicia Vikander as Vera Brittain, an independent young woman who abandoned her studies at Somerville College , Oxford , to become a war nurse. Against her father's opposition, she passes the entrance examination for Somerville College, Oxford. Before enrolling at Oxford, Vera and Roland—who shares her interest in writing and poetry—begin a romance, although she knows that Victor is in love with her. After the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand starts World War I , Vera helps convince her father to let Edward join the army instead of studying at Oxford; Roland and Victor also join, and Roland is the first to reach the Western Front. As long lists of casualties appear in newspapers, Vera leaves Oxford to volunteer for the Voluntary Aid Detachment as a nurse tending the wounded in a hospital in England. His friends still see the war as exciting, but Roland tells Vera of his traumatic experiences from trench warfare at the front.
