X is for X-tra Special

My Dad retired from the Army in 1973 while we were stationed at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe  (SHAPE) in Mons, Belgium.  He worked for the Deputy Chief of Staff, Plans and Operations, a German general with a staff from Germany, the United States, United Kingdom, and Turkey.  As a retirement gift, my Dad received this book, Great Military Battles, signed by everyone in the department.

I love books that are inscribed - it's lovely to go back and read through notes left to mark special occasions.  Do you have any X-tra Special books like this on your bookshelves?
