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.

The book I ordered is of high quality printing and as I ordered the hardback cover will hopefully be a lasting keepsake for our grandson. I would recommend these books without hesitation.

Fabulous bible for First Holy Communion. Grandaughter delighted to see her name on the cover with the date too. Personal dedication inside is a nice touch too. Ordering was easy and delivered on time. Can’t fault the service. In fact this is the second time we have bought a bible; last time was for older grandson. Will buy a third when youngest grandaughter comes of age. Highly recommend this company.
