World War 2 is not over quite yet

Even though World War II ended almost 70 years ago, its ferocious aerial battles still rage on the Internet. In MAN AT WAR we meet Russians, Poles, Germans and Americans who are united by their common interest in "IL-2 Sturmovik", a game which lets its players take the place of WWII pilots and defend their country of choice. But it's not just simply a game - several of the players are descendants of WWII pilots, and they are determined not to let such petty details as "real life" get in the way of taking their revenge on their sworn enemies.
