I have collected WWII books for over 40 years. Those are important for understanding.
But I’ve noticed if you play a given simulation lets say three times, you learn much more, and gain an unique feel for the campaign or battle. Not to mention the names of the terrain, units involved, advantages and disadvantages, what units were strong, or weak.
The Barbarossa, Afrika Korps, Tunisian, Bulge, simulations go a long way to develop understanding of why things turned out as they did.
Haven't tried the PC simulations yet, has anyone on here done that?
