There were so many lives affected by World War II. The United States by war’s end had engaged over 16 million military personnel during the war with 670,000 of them wounded during conflict. Most of us have grandparents who were alive during the war and many of them served in the military at that time. We have grown up hearing stories of the war, sharing experiences secondhand, marveling at the courage and sacrifice shown by the soldiers during years of unspeakable tragedy.

The battles have become the stuff of legend, taught in every American History class, re-told at family gatherings, glorified in movies. At times it seems that those of us removed by decades from the actual conflict were actually there and saw firsthand those events in history. The Battle of Normandy, part of the larger D-Day Invasion, which exemplified the raw courage and instincts for survival of soldiers. The Battle of the Bulge over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays in 1944-1945 as the fate of western Europe lay in the balance. The Battle of Midway in June, 1942, when the U.S. Navy, led by the U.S.S. Enterprise, crippled the Japanese navy. And the Battle of Iwo Jima in February, 1945, and the famous raising of the American flag atop Mt. Suribushi.

The fascination for this war remains seemingly as strong today as it was decades ago, thus at least partially explaining the emergence and success of online WW2 war games. With state-of-the-art graphics now available one can sit comfortably in an easy chair, plug into the 3-D cockpit in a plane of your choice, and fly over terrain of your choosing battling other gamers around the world. The experience is so close to reality that you would swear you were fighting for the Allies as they stormed the beaches of France.

Since 2000 Aces High has been the standard of WW2 online games, the level of excellence that other online games measure themselves by, and the game is as exciting today as it was in 2000 because it is constantly being updated with new versions and additions.
