Do you know a budding historian? Do you want to give the gift knowledge and history? Look no further than this newspapers of the 1940s book, which collates genuine newspaper coverage from the LA Times throughout the 1940s. This book uses reportage to plot a fascinating history to offer unrivalled insight into years gone by. World War II dominates the headlines featured throughout this book, with detailed coverage of the tumultuous conflict that occurred and US involvement in it. Early headlines detail the Nazi invasion of Europe, Roosevelt’s compelling ‘Arsenal of Democracy’ speech in 1940 and coverage of Japan’s bombing of Pearl Harbour.
Although the aftermath of the war is a predominant theme throughout the book, there is also a wealth of alternative coverage such as the destructive Fort Lauderdale hurricane in 1947, Gandhi’s death in 1948 and Truman’s recognition of the new state of Israel. For added charm, personalise this book with a name and presentation message.

If you've seen or used a Haynes car…
If you've seen or used a Haynes car manual, then you'll appreciate the humour im this one!! A great gift for any car person/people, who've just got married or not!!
Well worth it as a present, as it is quite funny......or at least the parts that I quickly read before wrapping it up as a present. It was delivered quickly, within a few days too.

A great gift idea
Simple and easy to set up. Great quality product and arrived on time. A perfect little gift to give, recommend.
Smaller than a Hayes manual
Lovely book. Only personalised on the front cover & on one page inside.
A smaller size than the original Haynes manual. It’s ok for the money. Nice enough gift
