WWII History

Here we go with another installment of World War 2 Trivia. This is #356 for those of you who are counting while you play along.

Let’s do this, shall we?

QUESTION: On October 13, 1942, the Japanese carried out a heavy bombardment of Henderson Field. Where was Henderson Field?

It’s always nice to read about World War 2, but what if you could be involved in it? Aces High comes as close as any game to making that wish come alive. We put you in the cockpit of a WW2 aircraft and fly you over battlefields. We test your skills against the best gamers in the world.

What do you think? Sound like fun to you?

ANSWER: Henderson Field was in Guadalcanal!

Let’s start with a bold statement: online gaming is in defiance of the social distancing mandate!

Games like Aces High flight simulator, in other words, are defying the Federal Government and state governments.

And we aren’t getting in trouble at all! How cool is that?

Such is the nature of MMO games and MMORPG’s, massively multiplayer online role-playing games, in today’s gaming world.

Let’s talk about our game, Aces High, and how it defies social distancing in a healthy way.

The nature of a MMORPG game

Massively multiplayer online role-playing games means, simply, that when you log on to Aces High, the leader in World War 2 flight simulators, and then sign on for one of our ongoing “Aces High arenas,” you are instantly “in touch” with multiple players from around the world in a competitive setting. The scenario/action goes on and on, with players coming and going, in kind of a never-ending battle encounter filled with strategy. You are in a very real sense “contacting” those players without actually touching them physically, so goodbye social distancing. At any given time there can be hundreds of Aces High players taking part in those arena, testing their skills against the skills of some very good flight sim gamers, playing Aces High, the combat simulator with attitude. A major slap in the face, for sure, to any governor demanding social distancing.

We say all this in jest, of course, but it is kind of cool if you think about it. MMO’s may be the only way people can actually compete against each other and not be in defiance of some law or mandate. It may be the only healthy competition available at this time, a time without sports or other group activities.

And that alone is reason enough to sign up for Aces High.

But there are other reasons why Aces High is so popular.

Consider that, in a gaming world gone crazy with thousands of MMO games available, Aces High is the leading WW2 flight sim game and has been since 2000 when it was introduced. Hey, if you’re going to play a flight sim game, you might as well play the best, right?

World War 2 Trivia returns with Installment #354. If you’re new to our clubhouse, just pull up a seat and attempt to answer this question about World War 2.

We are back with World War 2 Trivia, Installment #355 for those who like numbers. You know how this works: we ask a challenging question about World War 2, and you try to dazzle us with your knowledge. Ready?

QUESTION: The US 100th Infantry Battalion was activated, which was noteworthy because it was predominately Nisei. What does that mean?

Have you tried Aces High yet? Aces High is the leader among World War 2 flight simulators. Take advantage of our free two-week download and see for yourself how fun it is.

ANSWER: Nisei means its members were mostly of Japanese ancestry, which was obviously quite controversial during the war.

How’s that self-isolation going for you?

If you are like most of us, streaming on Netflix has lost its luster. One can only watch so many documentaries and then one starts talking to oneself, right? I mean The Tiger King is fascinating in that way a train wreck is fascinating, but watch too much of that stuff and you’ll be as crazy as The Tiger King himself.

But there are a couple Netflix documentaries well-worth watching, and they are both about World War 2. The newest of those two is World War 2 in HD, and it is a fascinating look at a conflict which affected almost every human being on the planet in one way or another, with over fifty million losing their lives. And after you watch that film we encourage you to safely take part in a virtual war by playing Aces High, the leader of World War 2 flight simulators.

The film itself

The war is shown through the eyes and words of twelve soldiers who fought in that war. Documents have been discovered which have never been read before, diaries and letters to home, fascinating stuff from those who were in the war. Film was discovered, never seen before. It all adds up to ten installments of about forty-five minutes each, and it truly is amazing stuff to watch.

What we learn

What we learn is that war truly is hell. We hear the anguish in the voices of actual participants in World War 2. We feel their anguish through their written words.   New films showing the Battle of Leyte, the Invasion of Normandy, the Battle of Britain, all point to the incredibly destructive nature of modern warfare.

And what we also learn, from those who served, is that war is a terrible waste, terribly sad, and inhumanely brutal.

We highly recommend you set aside time to watch this stunning piece of film-making.

Aces High – not brutal at all

And after you watch that documentary you can sit down and take place in online battles over the Western Front of World War Two, or in the Pacific Theater during World War 2. We (HiTech Creations) have spent years researching World War 2. We have duplicated aircraft, ships, and ground vehicles with the utmost care and attention to detail. We figuratively put you in the cockpit of a World War 2 aircraft and allow you to fly missions over the battle-scarred landscape. And we put you in charge of troops as you go against some of the best flight sim gamers in the world. The action is 24/7, 365, always there when you need an adrenalin rush.

And for two weeks we offer it all for free!

That’s right, free! We offer a free two-week download of Aces High, no credit card required. That’s how confident we are that once you try our combat simulator with an attitude, you will sign up with our monthly payment program of only $14.95 per month.

What do you have to lose? The virus isn’t going anywhere. Your boredom will be here any old time you want to return to it, but in the meantime, why not play Aces High? Strap on your helmet and fly the skies with Aces High.
