Treat a history buff to this fabulous book, complete with newspaper articles published at the time, detailing World War I – it’s an extraordinary gift for those with an interest in World War I. It’ll give them a captivating insight into the major events during the war as it was fought in Europe and across the world.

Your World War I book opens on June 28th 1914 with the murder of Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife, the Duchess of Hohenberg heir to the Austrian throne, fatally shot in the station of Serajevo after a bomb failed to explode in their railway carriage. Exactly one month later, Austria-Hungary declared war on Servia throwing the whole of Europe into turmoil.

Each page is filled with pictures and stories that record the movements of World War I, including major events such as the Battles of Somme and Ypres, the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, the comings and goings of influential figures such as Lord Kitchener and Sir Douglas Haig, whilst documenting the action in Anzac, Czernowitz and Zeebrugge.

Measuring 38 x 31cm (approximately tabloid size), this individually bound hardback newspaper book includes action on land, sky and sea such as the sinking of cruisers Mainz, Blucher, Queen Mary and Black Prince, war amid the sand dunes of South-West Africa and Zeppelin airship attacks over London.

Moreover, our personalised books on the history of the First World War are presented in a variety of smart covers and open with a front page montage surrounding your own personalised label containing the recipient's Name and Message.

Additionally, you can have the recipient’s Name gold embossed on the front cover, turning it into a treasured keepsake for a history buff.

Personalised First World War Newspaper Book

The recipient’s Name and even a personal Message can be added to the certificate title page of your First World War Newspaper Book to make it even more special, at no extra charge. For the perfect finishing touch the recipient’s Name can even be gold embossed onto the front cover of your book.

Through broad journalistic content, including photographs (something many competing titles didn’t utilise), advertisements etc. the Daily Mirror provides superior insight into the past.
