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.

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.
