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, a message and optional embossing
  • 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.

Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

Further Information

Features 90 stories and two cover pages. Total number of pages: 102.

Very disappointing

Very disappointing, looks poor as a gift. Small, not very attention grabbing. Story seems good but appearance let’s entire book down if you are gifting it. It arrived with a small bent corner

Matthew Greene Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 10 October

The book I got is great

The book I got is great, it just is a little disconcerting that although the address for this company is listed on Long Island, the book comes from the United Kingdom. This should be explicit.
