Just over 75 years ago, the U.S. became embroiled in a war that quite a few other countries were already fighting in both Europe and Asia. A new website is following the course of that war in real time, as it happened 75 years ago. But there's a twist: the presentation is a news website, as if it were happening today.
World War 2.0 tries to imagine what the reporting of World War II might have looked like if the conflict were taking place today. Articles are based on information that would have been available to the press at the time, but they are written using contemporary journalistic style. The authors are all students at Seton Hall University, working with assistant professor of journalism Matthew Pressman.
World War 2.0 will continue to post news of the war through the 75th anniversary of VJ Day, which will be in 2020. You'll want to bookmark it to keep up with the developments "as they happen," so to speak. -Thanks, James J Kimble!
