Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but can also obscure our perspectives, especially regarding second, third and fourth-hand information. With the personalized World War I newspaper book, no such problem exists. Featuring newspaper articles printed at the exact time, this book captures the mood and perception of the nation as it lived through the Great War. Starting with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, directly leading to the declaration of war across Europe, through the legendary battles of the Somme and Ypres, to the actions of key figures such as Tsar Nicholas II and Sir Douglas Haig, the clippings presented cover the action over land, sky and sea, giving an extensive, thorough view of the First World War as it happened.

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.
