I’ve already decided on a WW2 era story, focusing on the western European theater. You play as yourself, as a member of the United States military. You begin as a standard infantry, but you could progress up the ranks, or possibly wind up in a specialized division(such as the 1st Infantry Division).
I’ve taken a lot of inspiration from the other war stories on this site, and I’m trying to make an original and immersive experience for the reader. Thoughts?
