As Testament of Youth movingly showed, the First World War was to haunt Vera Brittain throughout her life. When Great Britain again declared war on Germany in 1939, she feared the worst. But although during these years much was to be endured by the British, much was also to be gained. This spirit of determination is vividly captured by Vera Brittain as she describes her own personal experiences set against the dramatic events of the early war years, events like the Battle of Britain and the London Blitz which were to become a part of history as 'England's Hour'.

Vera Brittain was a well-known writer and journalist in both Britain and America. She begins this book in the summer of 1939 and ends it as the Battle of Britain is winding down. It was published originally in 1941, so the outcome of the war was not sure. The writing is almost what one would create in a diary or letters - describing her feelings, the residents of London and their adaptation to the bombing of the Blitz and the aerial battles overhead. She ventures out into the countryside and observes the differences. This item: England& Hour: An Autobiography 1939-1941. Pages with related products.

Vera Brittain was a well-known writer and journalist in both Britain and America. She begins this book in the summer of 1939 and ends it as the Battle of Britain is winding down. It was published originally in 1941, so the outcome of the war was not sure.

The writing is almost what one would create in a diary or letters - describing her feelings, the residents of London and their adaptation to the bombing of the Blitz and the aerial battles overhead. She ventures out into the countryside and observes the differences. There are also continued reminders of how the East Enders lives were different both during and before the war.

The writing is in the present tense as the 15 months of England being at war began and continued. It is engrossing and interesting, especially since it is not written with the benefit of hindsight. Her heart breaks at the sending of her 2 children to America and we are able to see that process for her and others -the dilemma and the problems.

She can already see that Churchill's speeches will be historic. The scope of what she writes and includes is a window into this time...the pacifists, the bombed neighborhoods and the curiosity to see what has been bombed. We are witness to blown in windows and the thuds of anti-aircraft fire, the barrage balloons and reactions to air raid sirens.

This is indeed a book that anyone who is interested in Britain or WWII, even people in peril would be extremely interested in reading.

Given that this was written by Vera Brittain, I am amazed at the quality of the book.

Famously vain, a failed feminist leader, a failed novelist, a failed poet, an anti-Semite, a person who condemned the Nuremburg Trials and considered the Holocaust to have been exaggerated, Brittain was also a critic of Britain's war effort at a time when it was fighting for its life! She became extremely unpopular w/ the British government, lost her travel privileges (she called it "house arrest"), and was strongly resented by much of the British public who had given and were giving so much to defeat the Nazis, only to be belittled and undermined by Brittain and her non-interventionist ilk. I'm deeply impressed by the "pluck" and steadfastness of the British People in general, but particularly in WW II.

And yet, w/ all of her vanity and failings, she was at least capable of writing a factual account of her experiences witnessing the Blitz. Her only good writing was autobiographical, so I suppose that that allowed her to write this credibly.
