The book opens on June 28th 1914 with World War One newspaper articles on the murder of Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife, the Duchess of Hohenberg heir to the Austrian throne, fatally shot in the station of Sarajevo 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.
Each page is filled with pictures and First World War newspapers that record 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. This 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.

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

Perfect present and very well recieved.nLovely quality and great seller nMy only issue was that the sticker stuck in the front with the personalised message has not been stuck on straight !!nThat may seem a silly thing to pick about but in such a super book it spoils the look !!!!nOther than that perfect in every way !!

I love this book. It’s fantastic quality and has a real classy look. I was offered a discount which more than covered the cost of delivery, so this was a nice little bonus. I’ll be returning at some point for the WW2 book. nnCan’t wait to give this as a present on Christmas Day.
