In 1972, five men broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters, prompting a political controversy that would become one of the most famous subjects of print news of the Seventies, or indeed any other decade: the Watergate Scandal. Two years later, but still in the wake of the event, Richard Nixon would become the only US President to ever resign from office. The 1970s also saw the end of the Vietnam War, a twenty-year conflict which had seen millions of soldiers and civilians killed.
Two entertainment icons also lost their lives in the 70s: Elvis Presley at the age of 44, and Charlie Chaplin four months later, aged 88. 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.
