New (old) PC simulation war games

The Operational Art of War III.

Any battle at the operational level for the last 100 years or so. Unique movement and battle planning system empasizes that battles must be planned out.

Gary Grigsby’s World At War: A World Divided.

WW2 at the very high strategic level and into the post-war period. This is the sequel to the 2006 Award winning World at War.
Strategy Page - Gary Grigsby’s World at War is notable as the first step in recognizing PC games as legitimate entries into the ‘hobby’ game market. Gary Grigsby's World at War is one of the first, if not the first, PC titles to win a Callie award. This is a sign to retail hobby shops that it is alright to accept and embrace PC “board games” as an extension of their existing market. The Vanguards, such as the one given to Gary Grigsby’s World at War, are given to titles that are award worthy but do not fall into an existing category. Congratulations go to 2by3 Games – Gary Grigsby, Joel Billings and Keith Brors - for adding a great award to their long list of honors!
Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval Warfare adds multi-player mode to an improved Harpoon version.
