World War I Centenary Edition - Newspaper Book

Product Description
Do you know someone who is fascinated by World War I and the ways in which it was reported? It's difficult to imagine what it was like living through such a war and, right now, in a world where the media is so dominant, how it was portrayed in the papers at the time is fascinating...

Beginning on June 29th 1914, this hardback book houses numerous newspaper articles published during the war. With 32 beautiful and rarely seen black and white photographs, you can learn about the war as the events were unfolding.

Each page is packed with articles that document the progression of World War I, including major events such as the Battles of Somme and Ypres and the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, as well as the action in Anzac, Czernowitz and Zeebrugge.

Covering action on land, sky and sea, including the sinking of cruisers Mainz, Blucher, Queen Mary and Black Prince, it also reports on war amid the sand dunes of South-West Africa and the Zeppelin airship attacks over London. 

The papers are reproduced from scans of original newspapers and are individually printed to order onto a high quality thick paper to provide greater durability. Each book is hand-crafted, cut and bound by a team of specialists and can be personalised with a name to be embossed in gold on the front cover and a message for the inside cover certificate for that extra special touch. 

Available in either a black leather or green leatherette, it makes a special keepsake for a keen historian or journalist that can be treasured for years to come!
