Playtime for Hitler Youth

A board game from pre-World War II Germany that features a plan for naval attack on Great Britain has been found.

"As children in 1930s Britain played snakes and ladders or Peter Rabbit's Race Game, their counterparts in Nazi Germany were enjoying themselves with a far less innocent board game.

In an age when the British prime minister Neville Chamberlain talked of "peace in our time", a game that involved attacking the Royal Navy and bombarding British ports was already on sale in Germany."

"It gives you a very uncomfortable feeling to think that while British children were merrily playing snakes and ladders, those in Germany were happily enacting such destruction."
