We Chose to Speak of War and Strife brings us pivotal moments in our history, from the Crimean War to Vietnam; from the siege of Sarajevo to the fall of Baghdad.

Astonishing tales from the last 200 years celebrate this now endangered tradition as the digital realm has transformed the relaying of the news.

Most of our products and some publications in large print (16 point and above) can be sent by freepost under the 'Articles for the Blind' scheme.

However, the Articles for the Blind scheme offers no guarantees of delivery or insurance for valuable items. We do, therefore, have to make delivery charges for some high value products which need to be sent by a special delivery method. Where a product incurs a delivery charge this is highlighted in the product details and will be added to your order at checkout.

When we send your products, the package will include a 'dispatch note' with details of the contents. It is really important to check this against the actual contents of the package and alert us immediately (within 7 working days) of receiving the order about any discrepancies.
