Making History: The Calm & The Storm
Making History: The Calm & The Storm is a World War II grand strategy computer game released in March 2007 by developer Muzzy Lane. Similar in ways to the popular board games Axis and Allies and Risk, Making History is turn-based with basic industrial, economic, resource, research and diplomatic management included, with inspiration possibly drawn from the Civilization PC game series.
As of patch 2.03 players are able to play as any nation that had international recognition from 1936-1945, although players are encouraged to select from one of the more powerful entities of the era, namely Nationalist China, France, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Imperial Japan, The United Kingdom, The United States or the USSR.
The game has been successfully marketed by its developer as an educational tool, with the game described in a December 2007 Newsweek article as "already part of the World War II curriculum in more than 150 schools".

“Jesus, Lover of my soul, Let me to thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high;
Hide me, O my Saviour, hide, Till the storm of life be past;
Safe into the haven guide, O receive my soul at last.”
—Charles Wesley (17071788)

Stared at the Moon; and then I knew he knew.
And then he smiled at her; to him twas funny
Her calm steel eyes, her earth-old throat of honey!”
