I am a member of a game forum and one of the threads that came up was "why don't we have any WW2 games where Stalin is the main bad guy" The thread went on to say that Stalin was far worse an enemy than Hitler was and so why don't we have games where your fighting him and the red army rather than Nazis all the time Anyway I was a little surprised so I explained to him that in order to have a game like that you would need to be playing as a Nazi and that wasn't going to happen for various reasons such as having to show your side committing horrendous warcrimes and possibly your character being involved in that, not to mention that the game would receive an automatic ban in Germany. In the end after some back and forth I pointed out to him that the main enemies were Japan, Germany and Italy and he came back "yea pearl harbor I know about that" and around this time I realized something. Some how he believed that WW2 was the US vs Germany, Japan and Russia. The fact that he put the Russians on the wrong side wasn't what surprised me, he didn't even realize that the UK was involved, or France or Australia or even Canada I don't think. He simply thought it was the US fighting So I'm wondering, what do your schools actually teach about WW2? What are the sorts of media programs which surround 11/11 and whatever your equivalent of ANZAC day is? How could someone grow up not knowing about Churchill?
