After the devastation of the Second World War in the previous decade, America found itself embroiled in another two major conflicts in the 1950s: the Cold War and the Korean War. A major event in the former occurred on 5th March 1953, as the leader of the Soviet Union Josef Stalin died from a cerebral haemorrhage aged 74. The Korean War, often known as the “Forgotten War”, began in 1950 and lasted until 1953.
The shape of America as a nation was changing physically, too, with Alaska and Hawaii becoming the 49th and 50th states respectively. Elsewhere in the world, the most noteworthy 50s news story was the beginning of the reign of Elizabeth II, who took her coronation oath as Queen on 2nd June 1953. Personalize 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.

Order not received
Order not received, so chased up the day after it should have been delivered. Got a reply 3 days later saying "due to a technical issue, your order failed to make our internal system for processing". Customer service team offered to urgently print the book but couldn't say how long this would take or how quick the delivery would be. Totally missed the birthday.
