Call of Duty: WW2 is an FPS PC game developed by Sledgehammer Games in cooperation with Raven Software and published by Activision in 2017. It is the 1st game in the COD series to be set in the period of World War 2 since released in 2008 World at War. The game features the single-player campaign, taking players through the events of Operation Cobra and Battle of Bulge; online multiplayer, where players are pitted against each other as either Axis or Allies; and “the Nazi Zombie” mode, where players must cooperate to survive against the undead Nazi army.Plot of the game and charactersThe plot of the single-player campaign of the game takes place during major military operations of Second World War – The D-Day, Operation Cobra and the Battle of Bulge. The main character of CoD: WWII is U.S. Army Private First Class Red Daniels – the member of 1st Infantry Division. He and his platoon march across war-torn Europe taking part in decisive battles of World War II. It is a dangerous road, one that will test the loyalty and strength of bonds between the men.GameplayDue to its more realistic approach and historical setting WW2 does away with many of the staples of previous games in the series, set in modern and even futuristic times, such as wall runs, double jumps and power slides. Instead of the latter, a new mechanic called “hit the deck” was introduced.This move allows the player to lunge forward and quickly get to cover. The unlimited sprint mode from two previous titles in the series makes its return.The single player campaign also reintroduces health bar system from earliest installments. Instead of finding cover and waiting for health to regenerate over time, players must seek out health packs to restore lost HP.Health packs are also provided by main character’s squadmates, who will also support player with additional ammunition and grenades. They can also call in a mortar strike and spot enemies, revealing their position to the player. Certain parts of the game allow capturing prisoners and dragging wounded allies to cover. In some sections, the player can control vehicles.Online modesCall of Duty: WWII includes a multiplayer mode, in which players compete online as either Axis or Allies. On Allies side, players can choose from American, British and Soviet armies, as well as the French Resistance. On the Axis side, there are only members of Wehrmacht. WWII's multiplayer introduces Divisions system, which replaced traditional create-a-class mechanic. There are five divisions in total, each with different basic training, division training and weapons skills. While progressing through ranks in divisions, players gain additional perks.The divisions player can choose in multiplayer are:Infantry – the most versatile, mid to long range, special skill is bayonet charge;Airborne – fast and quiet, players can use suppressors on sub-machine guns for stealth gameplay;Armored – heavy firepower, less damage from fire and explosives;Mountain – long ranged, more precise sniper rifles with aim assist, blocking out surroundingsExpeditionary – shotguns with incendiary rounds, lethal and tactical grenades replenished by killing enemies;Resistance – stealth close quarter combat with knife and pistol, sense nearby enemies and scramble their radar at close range;Cavalry – riot shield increases defense, charge at enemies, improved objective skills;Commando – allows lacing flare on the map, creating respawn point, perks focused on health regeneration.COD: WW2 includes Headquarters mode which serves as a social hub of the game, where players can train at the shooting range with all available weapons, watch other player open loot boxes as well as take them on in one on one duels.Partnership with Raven Software resulted in a new mode called “War”. Two teams of 6 gamers carry objectives as either Allies or Axis through various historical battles, such as Normandy landing, where players can either assault Omaha beach as Allies or defend it as the Axis.Other multiplayer game modes include Team Deathmatch, Domination and Hardpoint.Nazi zombiesWave-based survival cooperative game mode, popularized by the series, where players take control of one of four characters, each representing different class: Offense, Control, Medic and Support, which possess different in-game abilities, specific loadouts and Raven Mods – perks similar to those in multiplayer.

The image is indelible: densely packed lines of slow-moving Redcoats picked off by American sharpshooters. Now Matthew H. Spring reveals how British infantry in the American Revolutionary War really fought. This groundbreaking audiobook offers a new analysis of the British Army during the “American rebellion” at both operational and tactical levels. Presenting fresh insights into the speed of British tactical movements, Spring discloses how the system for training the army prior to 1775 was overhauled and adapted to the peculiar conditions confronting it in North America. First scrutinizing such operational problems as logistics, manpower shortages, and poor intelligence, Spring then focuses on battlefield tactics to examine how troops marched to the battlefield, deployed, advanced, and fought. In particular, he documents the use of turning movements, the loosening of formations, and a reliance on bayonet-oriented shock tactics, and he also highlights the army's ability to tailor its tactical methods to local conditions. Written with flair and a wealth of details that will engage scholars and history enthusiasts alike, With Zeal and with Bayonets Only offers a thorough reinterpretation of how the British Army's North American campaign progressed and invites serious reassessment of most of its battles. 1.

It is June 1917. World War One has been bleeding Europe to the marrow for three years and ten months. The United States Marines land in France at St. Nazaire on the River Loire. They are the first American troops to enter the war since it had been declared on the Central Powers ( Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, Turkey) on April 6, 1917. They come from Marine bases all over the world; they have come from the Philippines, Cuba, Haiti and as far away as China. They have chased Chinese warlords and bandits; fought insurrection in the Philippines, Cuba and Nicaragua. They have been formed into the vastly understrength 5th Regiment of the 4th Brigade of the combined Army and Marine 2nd Division of the United States Expeditionary Force. Squad Sergeant Fallon Killrain, the only child of Brennan Killrain and Theresa Fallon, who died in childbirth, stands at the head of the 3rd platoon of the 17th Company of the 2nd Battalion. Since there is no other sergeant in his platoon and no officer, he is the titular commander of the unit. His platoon is the third one to land in France. The 17th Company is commanded by Captain Robert Stoddard, his commanding officer in China. The eight men in his platoon, a platoon that should be filled by thirteen to eighteen Marines, had been all over China with him and the captain looking after U. S. interests. When they debark, they are met by 'Vive L'Americain' and 'Thank God you've arrived.' They encamp just outside of St. Nazaire. They are bivouacked in a temporary camp, awaiting orders for their deployment. The rumor that they will train with France's best combat unit, The Chasseurs Alpins-elite French mountain troops-in Gondracourt. It is a rumor which becomes reality, and they entrain for the town situated just below the Vosges Mountains, in the southeast of France. Fallon's company is stationed at the town of Houdelaincourt where they begin training with the Chasseur Alpins in preparation for the trenches. The Chasseur are impressed with the Marine discipline and especially impressed with their ability to shoot; they are all sharpshooters and expert marksmen and very proficient with the bayonet. Their relationship with the Chasseur Alpins is very cordial and mutually respectful as professional soldiers. The 17th Company's training consists of most things that the Marines had done many times before in their constant striving for perfection. They train in attack and defense of the trench system, one of the few things for which they hadn't trained; they are told about trench raids and the best way to conduct them; they are told about poison gas, another thing they weren't familiar with. Everything about attack and defense, most of which they already knew, is the crux of their training. In the interim, before their deployment, General John 'Black Jack' Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Force, wants the Marines to assist military stability as military police and he also want's to use them as communication troops. Captain Stoddard orders Sgt. Killrain and Cpl. Dicky White, another China Marine, and now MPs, to go to Paris and transport a recalcitrant former 1st. Sgt. in the Philippines, Pvt. Damond Brace, whom Stoddard knows from a previous deployment, back to St. Nazaire. He's been accused of slapping a girl and getting drunk in a Bistro called the Black Owl. He is currently in the neighborhood Gendarmerie on the Rue Caumartin in the Montparnasse section of Paris. When they escort Private Brace back to Houdelaincourt, he claims he never hit the girl. The French gendarme, Gilles Bracaud, formerly of the French Army and wounded at Verdun, confirms Brace's innocence. When they return, Captain Stoddard sees to it that Brace is transferred to his company, to keep an eye on him. Capt. Stoddard and his second, Second Lt. Stephan St. James, have been ordered to observe the combined British and Canadian attack on the German strong point at Passchendael-the Third Battle of Ypres-being waged in Flanders, Belgium. But, before he leaves, he talks to Fallon Killrain about the tools of the past can be used to fight a war of the present. He spells out his idea of using the Sharps Buffalo Rifle against the Germans at long range-the Sharps Buffalo Rifle, which was an essential weapon in
