This chess set glorifies Nazi Germany’s terratorial ambitions during World War II. The pieces are shaped like weapons. The text in the border lists the countries that Germany had attacked in 1939 and 1940. This set may have been presented in 1941 by SS Commander Heinrich Himmler to Anton Mussert, leader of the Nationaalsocialistische Beweging (NSB), the National Socialist Movement in the Netherlands.
