Has anyone read Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain? It's a memoir from World War 1 that I'm reading for a history class. Her fiance, best friend, and brother all went to the front lines of the war in France.

I'm only about half way through but some of the writing is so incredible....the things she says about writing letters to her fiance, and her feelings about missing him, waiting for contact with him, future plans etc. are things I find myself thinking about with DB over in Iraq.

That is what I love about history, how someone's personal experiences so long ago are almost Identical in theory to what goes on today. Reading some of the things in this book give me goosebumps it is so eery

It's a great book so far though (kinda hefty) but if you interested in reading another perspective on things that you might be going through I'd definitely recommend it!!!!
