    If you enjoy turn based operational stuff, I'd recommend the SSG series of games. Battles in Normandy, Battles in Italy, Battlefront, Kharkov

    Strategic Studies Group - Makers of Award Winning Strategic Computer Games

    They take a bit of getting used to, but they deliver a hex based game with a lot of operational decisions attached, more so than your usual hex based chit shifters (like Panzer General, Commander: Europe at War or Time of Wrath).

    If you want a more fluid experience I can thoroughly recommend Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge, from Panther Games. You "macro manage" your units from higher up, and the games AI takes care of a lot of fiddly and time consuming micro management. It can play out like a more detailed Real Time Strategy game, only with the option of pausing the action and setting your orders. It is quite an expensive game though.

    Matrix Games - Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge.

    I've a number of articles on my gaming blog, regarding Command Ops:Battles from the Bulge (and some other wargames) if you are interested.

    Company of Heroes is also an excellent real time strategy experience, as well as the Men at War series.

    Thanks for your kind words Kingarthur, I dabble in all sorts of games, but mainly focus on the obscure strategy and wargaming titles.

    Other sites well worth a look, if you like wargaming or strategy gaming are:

    The Wargamer | For All Your Strategy Gaming on the 'Net
    Flash of Steel — The Best Strategy Game Blog in My House

    I tend to use gaming as a medium to explore the possiblities of particular conflicts and eras. Its a very interactive way to enjoy my fascination with the historical subject. I guess playing out scenarios and situations can give you a fuller insight into the topic, as well as pure information you can gather.

    The HOI series is by far the best overall Grand strategy game, and I believe second to none. :)
