Overview

Bravely storming the beaches of Normandy. Holding down the front lines while under attack from the enemy. Battling enemy fighters through the streets of a wartorn city. Fans of combat video games enjoy these scenarios and many more. But what is the true story behind today's popular battle games? What was it really like to fight in World War II battles? Who were the real leaders and commanders during the world's biggest wars? How do today's soldiers really combat enemy fighters in foreign countries? Compare true history to today's popular video games and learn if they portray history accurately, or if the truth gets twisted to create a more exciting game-playing experience.
