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
This edition comes in a green leatherette cover with your recipient’s name embossed in gold as standard. Also add a special message to feature on the book’s title page.
When entering your personalization, please note that accents, emojis and other symbols can’t be used as our system doesn’t support these. Make sure to double check your spelling!

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]
Fabulous, such a beautiful book with personalisation; my granddaughter will love it

Constant calls about delivery
Constant calls about delivery. The people on the phone actually have no control over when an item gets sent out so it was just constantly false information. I actually didn’t need the item after it arrived late, but I couldn’t stand speaking to them on the phone again to go over the refund process which they probably would have not allowed as it was personalised.
Really bad experience

Ordered and paid for a book for my…
Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Update: Inthebook contacted me the next morning, updated me on the shipping and my mother’s book arrived the next day. She’s 84 and it’s been awhile since I’ve seen her tears of joy. All’s well that ends well. Thank you, and I’ve updated my review to reflect 5 stars.
