Inside the book are World War 2 newspaper articles written while the events were unfolding at the time. It’s an intriguing insight on the major events during the war as it was fought in Europe and across the world. Naval engagements also appear in this book on World War 2, including the sinking of the Graf Spee, Scharnhorst and the Bismarck, the bombing of Pearl Harbour, and the oceanic battles of both the Atlantic and the Pacific.
This World War II book begins on the 2nd September 1939 with the Nazi invasion of Poland. It encompasses various major events of the war in Europe including the rescue at Dunkirk, the D-day landings, the Allied invasion of Italy, the advance into Germany, and finally VE Day. This book on the Second World War also includes World War 2 newspaper clippings of other major engagements across the world; the North African campaigns, the fall of Hong Kong and Singapore, the fighting in Burma, and the bombing and surrender of Japan.

The recipient’s Name and even a personal Message can be added to the certificate title page of the 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.

The beautiful made to order book is then hand bound in a choice of high quality hardback covers. The Daily Mirror is Britain’s best-selling postwar newspaper up to the 1970s since it was established in 1903. Through broad journalistic content, including photographs (something many competing titles didn’t utilise), advertisements etc. the Daily Mirror provides superior insight into the past.

The product itself is of good quality - very happy with this. Problem with delayed delivery and on phoning I was told to visit the post office myself to chase! I phoned back to inform customer services the post office had not got my product. This time I spoke to someone who was much more helpful and who looked into it, apologised and explained the delivery was delayed ( Royal Mail). The delay was not the company’s fault but if customer services could have been more helpful initially , it would have been appreciated.
