I was disappointed that the book was approximately A5 in size, maybe I'm behind the times but my expectation was along the lines of the old Haynes manuals where all A4 in size

It came but was to old for my great great grandson I asked three year mine was for a ten year old
My thoughts on the book
It just arrived yesterday I am very happy it looks bigger than I would have imagined it but it is really cool. It is going to be a Christmas present for my boyfriend who loves history. He already knows a Buch about WW two but I feel like this is something different it shows you a different perspective of how everything took place and it shows you how the events were viewed at that time. The delivery took a little long ( for me 2 weeks) but I live in the USA and it was shipped from the UK so it obviously takes a little longer.What I also really like is that it says his name on it. It personalizes it and makes it more special and unique! I hope he will like it! I think this is a great present for history lovers

Amazing product, I couldn’t help but read it and show it to people before wrapping “Disney Cars” for my little boy. He is McQueen mad and the story so good. I love how they he made part of the Rusteze team.
Will be buying the rest and more in future.
Thank you so much 😊
