World War I - Newspaper Book - Gift Details
These personalised books on the history of the First World War are a wonderful gift for those with an interest in World War I.
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 is 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 murder of Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife, the Duchess of Hohenberg – heir to the Austrian throne, 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 Servia throwing the whole of Europe into turmoil.
Each page is packed with pictures and stories 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.
The book opens with a front page montage surrounding your own personalised label containing the recipient’s Name and a Message. It can be further personalised by gold embossing the recipient’s Name on the front cover.
This individually bound hardback book is approximately tabloid size, 38 x 31cm, and is presented in a choice of stylish covers.
