News Release: For Immediate Release
Cary, NC, 29 December 2010
Shrapnel Games would like to congratulate Pat Proctor, founder and lead developer of ProSIM, on the publication of his new book, Media War: The Media-Enabled Insurgency in Iraq, detailing the struggle between the US military and the enemy to shape US public opinion about Operation Iraqi Freedom. From Media War's Amazon description:
"The most important battle of the Iraq War didn't happen in Baghdad or al-Anbar. It happened every day on television, in newspapers, and on the Internet. It was the struggle between the US military and the insurgency for the will of the American people to prosecute the war. And the US military lost.
Pat Proctor is a US Army major who has served on the frontlines of the media war in Iraq. In addition to spending two years studying the media war for the Army, Pat was a key player in developing the communications strategy for General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker in Iraq in 2007."
Of course most gamers know Pat Proctor for his company, ProSIM, whose titles (published by Shrapnel Games) are some of the most realistic and intense simulations of modern land warfare commercially available. These real-time strategy games have been praised for bringing the contemporary battlefield to the home PC, allowing gamers to explore areas of conflict outside of the stereotypical World War Two gaming realm. It should also be noted that not only does ProSIM develop commercial titles, but they also serve the professional world, with their games being used as training tools across the globe by military and defense agencies.
In celebration of Pat's new book, Shrapnel Games would like to give gamers the chance to experience for themselves what ProSIM does best.
