Adler-Luftwaffenspiel is similar in many ways to Adler-Luftwaffenspiel, except it focuses on defence during air raids, rather than aerial combat. It is thought that the publisher’s premises were destroyed in the four great Allied air raids on Dresden in February 1945. Note that by 1942, Hugo Grasse were manufacturing the game counters from wood, rather than moulded plastic, as in earlier games.
