We’ve all had academic classes in middle school, high school, and/or college about World War 2 History. We have all sat through lectures about the Battle of Britain or the Battle of Leyte. We have all read numerous accounts of the D-Day, and perhaps some of you out there know about aircraft production, aircraft types, and the ships used during that great war effort.

But the one thing none of us has ever done is actually take part in the war. How could we, right? The war ended what, seventy-five years ago? That would mean we would have to be ninety-five years old, give or take a year or two, and few of the World War 2 veterans are still among us.

Enter Aces High, the leader of World War 2 flight simulators.
