Personalised First World War Anniversary Book

Explore the history of World War I through newspaper articles written while events were unfolding at the time, and not through the perspective of time. Created using scans of the original newspapers published at the time, this World War I book provides a captivating insight on the key events during the war as it was fought in Europe and across the world.

The World War I book begins with the murder of Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife, the Duchess of Hohenberg – heir to the Austrian throne, on June 28th, 1914, 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 Serbia, throwing the whole of Europe into turmoil.

Every page is crammed with articles that detail 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.

Your First World War Anniversary Newspaper Book contains 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. It will be presented to the recipient inside a FREE premium gift box as the perfecting finishing touch.

On opening your book, there’s a front-page montage surrounding your own personalised certificate which includes the recipient’s Name up to 22 characters together with a Message up to five lines of 30 characters. Moreover, you can have the recipient’s Name gold embossed on the front cover.
