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.

I found this website through Google and ordered a personalised gift for a friend's 50th. I was absolutely delighted with it. Very professional and it came within two days of ordering. Will definitely use this website again. Many thanks.
Packiaging was good the books arrived in good condition.It looks very nice with the leather luxury cover .
Quite a unique present. But for the price it was not as good quality as I would have expected.

Beautiful books my granddaughters are going to love them . Well worth the money .

Very quick reply reference to payments…
Very quick reply reference to payments due to be taken from my acct x2 when only one book ordered. Was told only one ordered but but two did come out of bank. Has put me in areas for only a couple of days and you did reimburse the money. So not bothered because charges will be minimal.
Also the tracking app didn't work. To be honest the above is a little hiccup.
The book came today and I've just looked at it and it's absolutely amazing. I am so so pleased with it because my stepson is a mental man Utd fan and the quality of the cover is perfect. A big thank you for this amazing book and will definitely recommend you to friends and family Thank Mrs Baz Sayers

So disappointed as the book was not as described and I can't give it as a gift. In addition, the customer service experience has been really poor. Such a shame.

really good quality and finish very happy
The book I received was folded and the cover and pages were creased, the package it came in was not folded or damaged at all, so it had to be done before shipping. This was going to be a gift and I am disappointed. I contacted the company days ago and still have not heard from them.
