Now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Hayley Atwell, and Taron Egerton In 1915 Vera Brittain abandoned her studies at Oxford to enlist as a nurse in the armed forces, serving in London, in Malta, and at the Western Front in France. By war's end, all those closest to her were dead, and she had witnessed firsthand the destruction and suffering of modern combat. Much of what we know and feel about the First World War we owe to Brittain's Testament of Youth. In this elegiac yet unsparing memoir, Brittain focused on the men and women who came of age as war broke out, exploring their politics, their hopes, and their fatal idealism. Acclaimed by the Times Literary Supplement as a book that helped "both form and define the mood of its time," this searing portrait is also a testament to every generation irrevocably changed by war.

Male literary friendships are the stuff of legend; think Byron and Shelley, Fitzgerald and Hemingway. But the world’s best-loved female authors are usually mythologized as solitary eccentrics or isolated geniuses. Coauthors and real-life friends Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney prove this wrong, thanks to their discovery of a wealth of surprising collaborations: the friendship between Jane Austen and one of the family servants, playwright Anne Sharp; the daring feminist author Mary Taylor, who shaped the work of Charlotte Brontë; the transatlantic friendship of the seemingly aloof George Eliot and Harriet Beecher Stowe; and Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield, most often portrayed as bitter foes, but who, in fact, enjoyed a complex friendship fired by an underlying erotic charge. Through letters and diaries that have never been published before, A Secret Sisterhood resurrects these forgotten stories of female friendships. They were sometimes scandalous and volatile, sometimes supportive and inspiring, but always—until now—tantalizingly consigned to the shadows.

The First World War was the first 'total war'. Its industrial weaponry damaged millions of men and drove whole armies underground into dangerously unhealthy trenches. Many were killed. Many more suffered terrible, life-threatening injuries: wound infections such as gas gangrene and tetanus, exposure to extremes of temperature, emotional trauma and systemic disease. In an effort to alleviate this suffering, tens of thousands of women volunteered to serve as nurses. Of these, some were experienced professionals, while others had undergone only minimal training. But regardless of their preparation, they would all gain a unique understanding of the conditions of industrial warfare. Until recently their contributions, both to the saving of lives and to our understanding of warfare, have remained largely hidden from view. By combining biographical research with textual analysis, Nurse writers of the great war opens a window onto their insights into the nature of nursing and the impact of warfare.

For centuries, the vagaries of human passion have moved, amused or scandalised us. This fascinating account explores seven centuries of relationships outside marriage, from all levels of society and the perspectives of both women and men. Drawing on literary sources as well as personal letters, criminal trials and divorce papers from the National Archives, it uncovers people's real attitudes to sexual transgressions, from the rumbustious 14th century to the 'permissive society' of the 1960s - and much swept under the carpet along the way. The topics include adultery, prostitution, divorce, high-society scandals, homosexuality, wartime romances, the effects of class and religion and the complex - often contradictory - standards imposed on love and sex.Famous and infamous cases, popular ballads and individual stories evoke the very real perils of love that broke the rules - pregnancy, social disgrace, loss of marraigeability, employment and a respectable future. Both a celebration of sexuality and a sober analysis of its consequences, this is a thoughtful, deeply moving guide to our ancestors' hidden desires.

Tom Marcus wurde vom MI5 rekrutiert, um sein Land zu schützen – undercover gegen interne und externe Bedrohungen, den Terror und zum Schutz der größten Geheimnisse des Landes. Tägliche Entscheidungen, die Leben oder Tod bedeuten. Ein nie enden wollender Kampf, den viele seiner Kollegen nicht überleben sollten. Bei einem seiner Einsätze nahm er die Identität eines verwahrlosten Obdachlosen an – und stellte bei einem Verdächtigen außergewöhnliche Verhaltensweisen fest. Zeichen, die vielleicht niemand außer einem ausgebildeten Agenten bemerkt hätte. Tom ließ das Haus stürmen. Gefunden wurden einige Gewehre und sechs selbstgebaute Bomben. Diese hätten, so zeigte sich später, 60 Schulkinder töten sollen, die sich auf der Rückfahrt von einer Klassenfahrt befanden. Dieser fesselnde Bericht über einen Krieg, der um unserer Sicherheit willen geführt wird, weiht uns in eines der am besten behüteten Geheimnisse Europas ein – den britischen Geheimdienst MI5.
