WW2 – Newspaper Book

  • Experience again the events of WW2 through pictures and stories as reported in the newspapers of the time
  • Personalise this book with the recipient’s Name and a Message
  • Option to gold emboss the recipient’s Name on the front cover

Relive the events of World War II through the news stories as originally reported by The Daily Mirror with our personalised books on the history of the Second World War.

This book brings together a unique record of the Second World War, concluding in the Nuremburg War Trials in 1945, through detailed news stories as they were originally recorded by reporters at the time.

Inside are newspaper articles written while the events were unfolding at the time rather than through the perspective of time. It’s an intriguing insight on the major events during the war as it was fought in Europe and across the world.

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 newspaper coverage 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.

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 Sea Battles in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.

These world war two books make superb and perfect presents for those with a love of history.

Open it up, and there’s a montage surrounding your own personalised label front page, containing the recipient’s Name and personal Message of your choice. The front cover will be embossed with the recipient's Name and a chosen Date.

Personalised Second World War Newspaper Book

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

Additional Information

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