The front pages of the 1940s were of course dominated by the Second World War. Perhaps the most significant event of the war from an American perspective was Pearl Harbour, a Japanese military attack on the US naval base on the morning of December 7, 1941. Later on in the decade, after the 1945 conclusion of the war, remaining tensions between the Western Bloc and the Soviet Union would lead to the beginning of the Cold War.
The 1940s also saw Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s unprecedented third term as President, as well as his untimely death four years later, while still in office. But perhaps the most shocking death of the 40s was that of Mahatma Gandhi, assassinated aged 78 in January 1948 by a right-wing Hindu nationalist. Personalise your Washington Post Decade book with a name and special message, which will be printed in a certificate on the title page. The name will also be embossed in gold on the cover, making this the perfect gift for any budding historian.
