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
This edition is available in a green leatherette cover with the option to emboss with your recipient’s name, or in luxury black leather, embossed in gold as standard. Also add a special message to feature on the book’s title page.
Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

Quick prompt delivery
I purchased the spider man book for my nephew, the product came promptly and I was updated to its delivery progress which was helpful. The only issue that I encountered was that the website kept crashing so I had to enter the information several times and I was unable to load the picture I wanted at the back of the book, which was a shame. Other than that, good quality book which my nephew loved seeing his name in throughout.
