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
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.

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.

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.
