In 1914 Vera Brittain was 20, and as war was declared she was preparing to study at Oxford. Four years later her life - and the life of her whole generation - had changed in a way that would have been unimaginable in the tranquil pre-war era.

TESTAMENT OF YOUTH, one of the most famous autobiographies of the First World War, is Brittain's account of how she survived those agonising years; how she lost the man she loved; how she nursed the wounded and how she emerged into an altered world. A passionate record of a lost generation, it made Vera Brittain one of the best-loved writers of her time, and has lost none of its power to shock, move and enthral readers since its first publication in 1933.

Shirley Williams dies aged 90

On April 12th, the Liberal Democrats announced the death of Baroness Shirley Williams on behalf of her family. She died peacefully in the early hours of this morning.

Sir Edward Davey, leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

“Political life will be poorer without her intellect, wisdom and generosity. Shirley had a limitless empathy only too rare in politics today; she connected with people, cared about their lives and saw politics as a crucial tool to change lives for the better.”

Speaking about her mother in 2015, Shirley Williams told The Guardian:

“My mother was an iconic figure for me because I could see what she stood for. She was a pacifist who was more of an example than an instructor. She didn’t go on about moral values, but she had them all right.”
