Give the gift of historical knowledge with this fascinating personalised World War 1 centenary photo book. Specially created to commemorate the war’s 100th anniversary, the pages of this book include original newspaper coverage from the British newspaper, The Daily Mirror. This masterful book tells the tale of the war not only through words but also the medium of photography. Open your eyes to the realities of the war, with more than 30 rarely-seen black and white photographs. This incredible book chronicles the major events in the war as they unfolded. The book opens on 29 June, 1914, with the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand—the catalyst for Austria-Hungary’s declaration of war on Serbia. From there, each page is brimming with pages that document the events of the war, including major happenings such as the Battle of the Somme and Tsar Nicholas II’s abdication.
The book’s opening front page montage surrounds your own personalised message, containing the recipient of your gift’s name and a special message of dedication. It can be further personalised by gold embossing the recipient’s name on the front cover.
How To Personalise Your World War 1 Book
The book opens with a front page montage surrounding your own personalised certificate containing the recipient’s name up to 22 characters and a message up to five lines of 30 characters. It can be further personalised by gold embossing the recipient’s name on the front cover.
Individually bound in an elegant black leather cover, this hardback book is roughly tabloid size, 38 x 31cm. This special centenary edition contains hundreds of Daily Mirror articles, as well as 32 black and white photographs.

Although the centenary books were of a reasonable quality and went down well as Christmas gifts, my experience wasn't great. Having ordered 2 books, only 1 was dispatched and I had to chase the 2nd one. No explanation offered as to what had happened .Although this issue was resolved, when ordering online the ability to execute an order and get it right first time is just as important as the product.
Absolutely brilliant. My father loved the A3 embossed book... Great quality and service... Thank you..

Not impressed with customer service
I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

Our web sessions are usually recorded therefore we have viewed your session and can confirm that on both orders you were advised of the additional cost of £5.00 for the gift box and standard postage costs which is clearly advertised on the website. What you are referring to with regards to a free gift box and reduced postage is our trade website however you have ordered via our retail site, these are two completely different websites.
