– Historian Martin A.K. Morgan
We are proud to announce that Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours historian Marty Morgan was the historical advisor on the new Call of Duty: WWII video game that aims to redefine World War II for a new generation. As Glen Schofield, Co-Founder and Studio Head of Sledgehammer Games says, “There really is this respect and honor that you have to pay not only to the people but to the places. Marty was so important to this project because he gave us details to making the game and getting it right.”
Call of Duty: WWII will take players to the front lines of war-torn Western Europe during one of history’s greatest conflicts, where the stakes were high and the only thing standing in the way of Nazi oppression was a generation of ordinary men and women willing to make extraordinary sacrifices to preserve our way of life.
As Marty says about Call of Duty: WWII, “To this day, the world remains scarred by conflict that we call World War II. The generation that fought and survived the Second World War, some of them are still with us now and we therefore have a living memory of the Second World War. As that living memory recedes, it’s up to a new generation to understand that memory, to understand the experience of fighting the war and surviving the war.”
Sledgehammer Games has produced a gripping documentary, “Brotherhood of Heroes,” about Call of Duty: WWII, where you can learn more about how Marty was involved in making the game as historically accurate as possible. Call of Duty: WWII will be available on November 3.
