About This Item

Lon: Gollancz, 1989. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First Edition First Impression. Book and jacket in fantastic condition with only light shelf wear. Book plate to front paste down. This is the third volume of Vera Brittain's diaries, following Chronicle of Youth and Chronicle of Friendship . It gives a blow-by-blow account of the London blitz by a woman who was an active pacifist and at the centre of London's social and political life. Vera Brittain's observations of daily life and the passing seasons contrast vividly with her own self-searching based on a sincere view of Christianity. Alan Bishop is a teacher of English Literature at McMaster University, Canada, which owns the Vera Brittain archive.
