The Thirties were a fraught, restless and a disturbed period, the years when Hitler achieved a stranglehold on Europe. Vera Brittain's stance was a staunchly pacifist one.

She was active too in other areas of Left wing politics, notably in support of her husband George Catlin in his Labour Party candidatures.
