The “Capitalist” chessboard army:

The “Capitalist” army included famous European political figures, ideological opponents of the Soviet authorities and USSR’s “internal” enemies in 1920s and 1930s. Some of them were in fact dangerous, while others were merely portrayed as foes by the Soviet propaganda machine. It was a common practice to draw caricatures of the opponents of the revolution to show the Soviet disdain towards them. Keeping up with the Soviet tradition, the author of the chessboard designed the figures as replicas of the caricatures drawn by the famous Soviet cartoonist Boris Efimov.
