A Perspective on Military Shooters

Video-game interpretations of military history and its conflicts have become a lucrative business. Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 2 is a good example of why the first-person military shooter genre has reached a huge audience. It offers people historically accurate portrayals of the American and Canadian landings on French beaches of Normandy, the Russian guerrilla warfare of Stalingrad, and English desert foxes fighting northern Africa. No book or video archive could recreate these stories as well as an interactive game could.
