"We had propaganda in Britain during the war, too, but I have never found a comparable British toy that would glorify the idea of bombing German cities such as Dresden or Berlin," said historian and auctioneer Richard Westwood-Brookes.
He said in a telephone interview Monday that the rare Nazi-era board games come from an unidentified collector in Germany who was unable to sell them there because of German law. The games are to be sold on Thursday at Mullock's auctioneers in Ludlow, central England.
