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
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.
Check your personalization: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

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@example.com
Not only the quality of the product but the superb customer service. The accessibility, the care and promptness I experienced with Yvette is laudable. Thank you Yvette, I am happy you replied to my inquiry. I would use and recommend the company In The Book without hesitation.

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
