Give the gift of historical knowledge with this fascinating personalised World War 1 centenary photo book. Specially created to commemorate the war’s 100th anniversary, the pages of this book include original newspaper coverage from the British newspaper, The Daily Mirror. This masterful book tells the tale of the war not only through words but also the medium of photography. Open your eyes to the realities of the war, with more than 30 rarely-seen black and white photographs. This incredible book chronicles the major events in the war as they unfolded. The book opens on 29 June, 1914, with the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand—the catalyst for Austria-Hungary’s declaration of war on Serbia. From there, each page is brimming with pages that document the events of the war, including major happenings such as the Battle of the Somme and Tsar Nicholas II’s abdication.
The book’s opening front page montage surrounds your own personalised message, containing the recipient of your gift’s name and a special message of dedication. It can be further personalised by gold embossing the recipient’s name on the front cover.
How To Personalise Your World War 1 Book
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.

Although the centenary books were of a reasonable quality and went down well as Christmas gifts, my experience wasn't great. Having ordered 2 books, only 1 was dispatched and I had to chase the 2nd one. No explanation offered as to what had happened .Although this issue was resolved, when ordering online the ability to execute an order and get it right first time is just as important as the product.
Customer service very polite and helpful, willing to solve the issue with a coupon for discounts which would not apply.
Solution was to offer me a refund for the correspondent discount, which I agreed.
Thank you, Rachel

Good quality products
The products and the service are excellent but the package used for posting is not good.
I ordered a book and it came with two corners damaged, it was replaced but the second book arrive with one corner damaged. I have managed to make the corner better. I suggest they put extra protection on the corners. I would order again as the products are good
