Give the gift of historical knowledge with this fascinating personalized World War 1 centenary photo book. Specially created to commemorate the war’s 100th anniversary, the pages of this book include original newspaper coverage from the British newspaper, The Daily Mirror. This masterful book tells the tale of the war not only through words but also the medium of photography. Open your eyes to the realities of the war, with more than 30 rarely-seen black and white photographs. This incredible book chronicles the major events in the war as they unfolded. The book opens on 29 June, 1914, with the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand—the catalyst for Austria-Hungary’s declaration of war on Serbia. From there, each page is brimming with pages that document the events of the war, including major happenings such as the Battle of the Somme and Tsar Nicholas II’s abdication.

The book’s opening front page montage surrounds your own personalized message, containing the recipient of your gift’s name and a special message of dedication. It can be further personalized by gold embossing the recipient’s name on the front cover.

How to Personalize Your World War 1 Book

The book opens with a front page montage surrounding your own personalized certificate comprising the recipient’s name, up to 22 characters, and a message, up to five lines of 30 characters. It can be further personalized by gold embossing the recipient’s name on the front cover.

Abooz Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Although the centenary books were of a reasonable quality and went down well as Christmas gifts, my experience wasn't great. Having ordered 2 books, only 1 was dispatched and I had to chase the 2nd one. No explanation offered as to what had happened .Although this issue was resolved, when ordering online the ability to execute an order and get it right first time is just as important as the product.

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

CHRISTINA MCCARTHY Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 20 Apr 2021

The book itself is absolutely beautiful…

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Once a customer has confirmed their order, it is not always possible to add/amend personalisation, as our Production Team are currently working 24 hours a day to keep up with the demand on orders and a photo does have to be uploaded at the time of ordering. With your order, unfortunately your book has already been printed and therefore amendments could not be made, which we do apologise for.

    In regards to the Child’s name throughout the book, unfortunately this is not possible with every book that we sell, however we do make it clear within the product information. With the book that you have ordered, we do confirm that your child’s name will appear on the cover and on each page. We do apologise if this information was missed at the time of ordering.

    As a gesture, we have applied a 10% discount to your order, which has been refunded to you. We hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

Michael Kaye Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 Apr 2021

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.
