World War I Centenary Edition - Newspaper Book - Gift Details

This special centenary edition provides you with the chance to relive the events of war, not only through newspaper articles like our standard edition - but also through the medium of photography, with 32 beautiful, rarely seen, black and white photographs. The book is bound with a luxury black leather cover.

Read about World War I through newspaper articles written while events were unfolding at the time, and not through the perspective of time. This World War I book has been created using scans of the original newspapers published at the time. It's a fascinating insight on the major events during the war as it was fought in Europe and across the world.

Your World War I book opens on June 28th, 1914, with the failed attempted assassination of Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian throne, and his wife, the Duchess of Hohenberg, after a bomb failed to explode in their motor car. Instead, it bounced off the folded hood, exploding in the car behind and hurt several people. Other articles include the second assassination attempt, wherein the royal couple's car was in a side street, in a stationary position, as it was about to turn around after taking the wrong route. It was here that Franz Ferdinand was shot and killed by Gavrilo Princip. Exactly one month later, Austria-Hungary declared war on Servia, throwing the whole of Europe into turmoil.

Each page is packed with articles that document 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.

This newspaper book covers action on land, sky and sea including 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.

Your Gift Personalised

The book opens with a front page montage surrounding your own personalised certificate containing the recipient’s Name up to 22 characters and a Message up to five lines of 30 characters. It can be further personalised by gold embossing the recipient’s Name on the front cover.
