Washington Post 30's Decade Book
- Gift Details
The Washington Post newspaper book uses reprinted coverage from DC’s flagship publication to create a fantastic reportage history of the key events throughout the 1930s.
The 1930s was quite a decade, crammed full of social upheaval, bloody intrigue and no small amount of interest in events across the pond. So what are some examples of what you can expect to find?
The ‘Crime of the Century’ gets plenty of the limelight, with reports on the kidnapping of the Linbergh’s baby son in 1932. The discovery of the toddler’s body some months later also features, along with the eventual trial and execution of Bruno Hauptmann in 1935 and 1936, respectively.
Other eye-catching headlines include John Dillinger’s robbery of an Illinois bank in 1934 and Amelia Earhart’s fateful flight over the Pacific in 1937. There’s also coverage of FDR’s first two election victories in 1933 and 1936, as well as reports on the death of various former presidents and Britain’s George V.
And speaking of events in the UK and Europe, there is, as you’d expect, plenty of detail on the cataclysmic events unfolding as a result of Hitler’s aggressive rearmament and expansionism...
