In the latest developer diary for Company of Heroes 2, more details for the single player campaign are revealed. 

Game director Quinn Duffy says that part of the goal of the real time strategy game is to "Portray the horror and terror of World War II in a way that is sensitive, but unflinching."

To help achieve a more realistically gritty feel, Relic Entertainment used journals of actual soldiers of the time period for reference. Watch the video below for more information and be sure to check out the newly extended beta before June 23.
