As long as the game is factual, and is apparently told by the people that were actually there, what is the issue?

It is just the same as grabbing a history book and reading about the stories of the 1st/2nd world wars. We can read about the Iraq war, so is that not the same thing?

Most war based games are propaganda, western games always have either the russians or nazi's as the enemy lol.

If it is not factual, then it is just fiction, in which case again, that will put it into the category of all computer games.
