Fascinating French board game from the First World War. Shows a combinaton of civilian and military themes. The "Game of Goose" is essentially a race game, with the players attempting to get to the last post. Judging the the uniforms and inclusion of tanks, I would date this game to 1918. The board on the reverse is for checkers, and is complete with 40 black and white wooden counters.
