History Heroes’ World War II quiz card game contains individual cards of forty of the most significant characters in World War Two. Each card is fantastically illustrated to represent the relevant character and shows their dates, their flag of birthplace and seven memorable and often moving facts about them.
Our World War Two characters are ‘heroes’ AND ‘anti-heroes’ unsurprisingly. They range from the key political and military figures, such as Chamberlain, Churchill, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Emperor Hirohito, Field Marshal Montgomery, Rommel and the like to many others, who shaped and influenced World War Two. Great innovators, such as Barnes Wallis, institutions and courageous people, such as Oskar Schindler, Evacuees, The Women’s Land Army, Raoul Wallenberg and Kindertransport all appear on cards in the game. The sweep of characters in the game is stark, moving and often inspiring.
