An authentic perspective of The Korean War is recounted through Washington Post newspaper articles printed at the time.
A collection of original Washington Post reprints from the 1950s
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 Korean War of the 1950s has often been referred to as “The Forgotten War”, but with this bespoke personalized book, it has never been easier to remember. Through newspaper articles printed at the exact time, the Washington Post Korean War newspaper book captures the mood and perception of the American nation during its involvement in the Korean War, which lasted from 1950 to 1953. Starting with the North Korean People’s Army’s 1950 invasion of the South via the 38th parallel, this book about Korean War history takes you through all the key events of the conflict, such as the Battle of Inchon, the Home-by-Christmas offensive, and the Battle of Heartbreak Ridge, eventually ending with the truce agreement of July 1953. The clippings presented cover the action over land, sky and sea, giving an extensive, thorough view of the Korean War as it happened.
Personalize your Korean War book with a name and special message on the title page. The name will also be embossed onto the cover to make this the perfect present for any budding historian.
How to Personalize Your Korean War Book

I got this book as a Christmas gift for my grandpa who is a Korean War Veteran. He absolutely loved it and read about 10 pages the first day! At first I was a little hesitant about purchasing the book because I thought the print might be a bit difficult to read from a previous review stating that the print was too small. But I'm glad I made the choice to buy it because my grandpa really likes it and could read it just fine without any trouble. The book is beautiful and the personalized name and message gave it a more personal feel to it.

Bought thie for my dad who is a Korean War vet. Articles to small for almost anyone to read. Headlines nice. Book itself is beautiful.

Thank you for your review.
We are sorry to hear that this is the case.
With the articles within the Book these are taken directly from the Original print of the Washington Post therefore the size of the next is something that we are unable to alter, we try our very best to make these scans as clear as we can before these are put within the Book however we are sorry for any disappointment caused.
We are very pleased to hear that you were happy with the presentation of the Book.
If you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact our US team on 347 923 9119 or [email protected]

Pleased with quick delivery
Pleased with quick delivery, lovely story for my Great Grandson who is 2half years old. Disapointed with the actual quality overall for the price you charged, regarding the quality of the thiness of the paper. Was expecting thicker pages.

90th Birthday Gift
We bought this for a relative's 90th Birthday present who lives in the south of England and as we live in the north it was delivered directly to him. It arrived on the day of his Birthday and he was absolutely delighted with it. He wouldn't have been happier if we'd given him £1,000. Thank you so much for a unique gift

I wanted to get my daughter something
I wanted to get my daughter something special for her birthday and In The Book did not disappoint! I bought her a personalised princess book which was great because it allowed me to put a picture of her inside and a special birthday message. When it arrived it came in a keepsake Disney box. My daughter absolutely loves it!
I would highly recommend In The Book because they provide a fast delivery service and quality products.
