Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but can also obscure our perspectives, especially regarding second, third and fourth-hand information. With the personalised World War I newspaper book, no such problem exists. Featuring newspaper articles printed at the exact time, this book captures the mood and perception of the British nation as it lived through the Great War. Starting with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, directly leading to the declaration of war across Europe, through the legendary battles of the Somme and Ypres, to the actions of key figures such as Tsar Nicholas II and Sir Douglas Haig, the clippings presented cover the action over land, sky and sea, giving an extensive, thorough view of the First World War as it happened.
How to Personalise the World War 1 Picture Book

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.

Thank you for your review.
We can see that an email was sent on Friday which we do apologise for the delay in responding, our responses usually take longer from the weekend due to high volumes. As requested, copies of your email confirmations have been forwarded in separate emails, if you have any queries please get back to us?
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.
Sorry for any confusion caused, if you need any further assistance please contact us.
Kind regards In the Book.
