Product Description

Military chess set - The Second world war edition featuring Hitler and Roosvelt

  • Presented on a beautiful Spanish board.
  • The piece are Made in Italy.
  • Exquisitely ornate.
  • Painstakingly hand painted.
  • 3.25 inch king.
THE PIECES
Easily recognised with his trademark moustache and haunted look, the infamous Hitler is flanked by incredibly detailed, high ranking officers either side. They in turn command the smartly uniformed pawns who are presenting to arms.

The rooks and knights are the dramatic pieces in this set with a spectacular tank representing the knight and the rook, a superbly detailed building. Despite it bearing the Swiss flag, we believe this to be the Reichstag Building in Berlin.

US President from 1933 until 1945, Franklin Delano Roosevelt heads this American force. His right hand man is potentially the high ranking Sergeant Major of the Army, a rank bestowed on one man only. The bishop stands proud as a sergeant major overseeing ranks of the smartly dressed pawns. Again the rooks and knights are the eye-catching pieces with The White House bearing the US Flag and a tank in action.

We have matched these historical pieces with a beautiful 15.75 inch walnut and maple board to produce this enviable chess set however The Hitler vs Roosevelt Second World War Chess Men are also available without the board. Either way they make a superb gift for any WWII or chess enthusiast.

THE HISTORY
A combat veteran who rarely smiled in public or private, Adolf Hitler disliked democracy and felt wronged by his country’s failure in World War I. Wanting to make amends for this failure, he imposed his will and law on both the Germans and the Russians. He also wanted to be highly regarded in history, however after his defeat, on which he blamed the lack of the will of his countrymen, he took his own life and had his body destroyed to save himself from hostile crowds

As World War II loomed, President Roosevelt provided substantial support to both the UK against the aggressive Nazi Germans and to China against threats from Japan. Despite his efforts to stay officially neutral, following the tragedy at Pearl Harbour, the US declared war not only on Japan but also Hitler a few days later.

In spite of his disability from polio, his war efforts were not just his masterful military strategies. As people moved into wartime factory jobs and into military service, unemployment decreased developing a stable and significant improvement in the economy. Unfortunately, with his health declining during the war years, Roosevelt sadly passed away 3 months into his 4th term and the world mourned. He is ranked in the top three of American Presidents along with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Please note that as these pieces are hand painted, there may be some inconsistencies in the level of detail and colour and therefore your pieces may be very slightly different from the images shown. Any inconsistencies however are minimal.

Product Reviews

"Although, I received damaged queen of hitler’s army but within two days Regency supplies the replacement to me. Back to the original topic. I love to read, watch and learn about WWII and its related topics such as holocaust etc because history teaches us that how should we make reforms in our present to reshape a better future. Therefore, I bought this particular chess set. The quality of product is amazingly too good. The finish of the board is excellent and each chess piece have incredible details. From the first touch you will notice that it is made of superb quality material, not cheap material or plastic etc. The size and weight of the whole chess set is absolutely perfect. You won’t regret on this purchase."
