Testament of Youth is the first installment, covering 1900–1925, in the autobiography of Vera Brittain (1893-1970). It was published in 1933. Brittain's autobiography continues with Testament of Experience, published in 1957, and encompassing 1925–1950. Between these two books comes Testament of Friendship (published in 1940), which, while also autobiographical, is essentially a biography of Brittain's close colleague and friend, Winifred Holtby.
