World War I - Washington Post Newspaper Book - Gift Details
In this Washington Post newspaper book, you'll find a unique and compelling record or World War One. Made up of news coverage written at the time of war, our First World War Personalized Newspaper Book will give you an insight into how the public perceived events of the Great War as they were happening.
The book opens with the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife in Sarajevo, 6th June 1914, closely followed by Austria's declaration of war against Servia. The 'European War' as it was called at the time, is covered extensively, with details of bloody battles between the Triple Entente and the Central Powers. There are many articles about the violent conflict between England and Germany and the sinking of the Lusitania off the Irish coast is also covered.
By May 1915, focus turns to the United States, with Germany provoking their involvement in the war. German U-boats sink three American ships in March 1917, which leads to the United States declaring war with Germany, just weeks later. The coverage from here onwards is largely about the American successes on the battlefields, as the Allies grow stronger and take the upper hand. The book comes to a close with articles about the Kaiser's abdication and the Russians seizing German government in Berlin. The last article on November 12th, 1918 contains the terms of the armistice in full.
