i love that world war 2 is called world war 2
it sounds like the sequel to an action movie
“WORLD WAR 2….
GERMANY’S BACK, AND THIS TIME….
this has a great deal of accuracy though
and sequels are always worse than the original
Oh, sure, WWII was worse than WWI in a lot of ways. I mean, the clear-cut good vs evil thing isn’t very realistic. But on the other hand, WWI’s web of politics was very confusing (Britain went to war with Germany because Germany marched through Belgium because France declared war on Germany because Russia went to war with Austria-Hungary because a Serb shot an Austrian in Bosnia? Seriously?). Compared to that clusterthing, black and white conflict is almost preferable.
That being said, the ending to WWII wasn’t stellar either; clearly the writer was a fanboy for USA since WWI came out, seeing as US is written as basically saving the day. And that was a serious deus ex machina with the atomic bombs- they play up this huge invasion of Japan that would involve gigantic climactic battles, and then it’s all prevented with new city-destroying tech out of nowhere?
I could go off on how the fates of countries like Germany and Vietnam were left unresolved in a transparent attempt to justify the Cold War spinoff series, but honestly, I’m happy about Cold War since it actually addressed the consequences of the existence of such horrifying weapons.
It’ll be interesting to see how the new series War on Terror goes, especially since Korea is still unresolved and new subplots like Syria and NSA seem to be giving Russia the upper hand again. I hope the writers actually tie up all the plot strands by the end of it, because it’s starting to seem like they’re just milking this franchise for all it’s worth. But it probably won’t end with Terror- it’s pretty obvious that the writers are building up to, as someone else suggested, World War III. I really hope I’m wrong on that. I don’t see that movie ending in any way other than a cliche dystopian apocalypse.
TLDR: Just read it you uncultured swine.
