Scarce 1941 game titled 'Adler Air Defense Game,' published by 'Der Adler,' official magazine of the Luftwaffe. Game cover shows a British RAF Bristol Blenheim Bomber being shot down by German Artillery. Colorful playing board simulates battle situations involving successful German defenses against airplane raids and bombing by the enemy (in this case Britain's Royal Air Force, or RAF). Detailed instruction book states that 'The game was invented by a Luftwaffe officer, to promote thorough understanding of the Wehrmacht's aerial attack and defense. Its deeper meaning lies, in the ever-alert mind, the protection of the homeland.' Thus game was meant to be instructive as well as for propaganda purposes by Nazi regime. Game shows the extent to which the Nazi regime used the reality of war against England to boost nationalism and morale. Swastikas visible on box cover and inside. Box in excellent condition, contents look complete and slightly used. Game box 12"x9", board opens to 24"x17".
