  1. I'm looking for a war game that's similar to Crusade in Europe: I think it has the following qualities: 1. strategic rather than tactical level, involving divisions, regiments, etc.; 2. historical (actual names of military units with number of personnel, tanks, etc.); 3. runs in real-time (the player pauses the timer to give orders) with fog of war; 4. not a lot of micro-management: the orders are attack, defend, transport, etc., with supplies sent daily from depots; and 5. air units attack and then return to base. The game offers what-if scenarios (like strengthened and air-dropped units in the Battle of the Bulge), and there are other games in the series (like Conflict in Vietnam, which has a what-if scenario for Dien Bien Phu, and Decision in the Desert, on the WW2 North African campaign). There are links to the games and manuals, but I haven't tried them: https://archive.org/details/msdos_Crusade_in_Europe_1985 https://archive.org/details/CrusadeInEurope https://archive.org/details/msdos_Decision_in_the_Desert_1985 https://archive.org/details/agm_Decisions_in_the_Desert https://archive.org/details/msdos_Conflict_in_Vietnam_1986 https://archive.org/details/ConflictInVietnam
