The letters between Vera Brittain and Roland Leighton
During the First World War Vera Brittain served as a Voluntary Aid Detachment (V.A.D) nursing wounded soldiers in England, France and in Malta.

After the war she became strongly - and famously - associated with the peace movement, to which she was committed for the rest of her life.
