You'll love this because...

The biggest events of the 1940s are showcased via Washington Post newspaper articles printed at the time.

  • A collection of original Washington Post reprints from the 1940s
  • Personalized with any Name and Message
  • Gold embossed and handbound in a racing green leatherette cover
  • Ability to emboss your cover for free
  • 12.5” x 15” of tabloid coverage of major events

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.

How to Personalize the 1940s Decade Book

This edition comes in a green leatherette cover with your recipient’s name embossed in gold as standard. Also add a special message to feature on the book’s title page.

Pleased with quick delivery

Pleased with quick delivery, lovely story for my Great Grandson who is 2half years old. Disapointed with the actual quality overall for the price you charged, regarding the quality of the thiness of the paper. Was expecting thicker pages.

90th Birthday Gift

We bought this for a relative's 90th Birthday present who lives in the south of England and as we live in the north it was delivered directly to him. It arrived on the day of his Birthday and he was absolutely delighted with it. He wouldn't have been happier if we'd given him ÂŁ1,000. Thank you so much for a unique gift

I wanted to get my daughter something

I wanted to get my daughter something special for her birthday and In The Book did not disappoint! I bought her a personalised princess book which was great because it allowed me to put a picture of her inside and a special birthday message. When it arrived it came in a keepsake Disney box. My daughter absolutely loves it! I would highly recommend In The Book because they provide a fast delivery service and quality products.
