Aachen action: New Finest Hour screens

Images of war from the Call of Duty frontline

Although commonly shortened to the perhaps slightly unfortunate acronym CoD, WWII first-person shooter epic Call of Duty proved to be anything but fishy on PC. Now the console version Finest Hour, having studied sand tables, maps and aerial reconnaissance photos, is preparing to make the jump and go to war. New screens from the FPS title have been delivered into our hands today.

Just in case you were wondering, the screenshots come from the mission 'First City to Fall', a US mission set in Aachen. A quick bit of research has revealed that Aachen was the first German city to be captured in the Allied advance in and across Western Europe, falling in fact to the U.S. First Army on October 21, 1944.
