I can think of 10 more that are as worthy or nearly so. A recently released one that expands the market to less groggy folks is Fields of Despair.

+1 to Fields of Despair (https://www.gmtgames.com/p-686-fields-o ... nting.aspx) great fog of war system, love the mechanics of how it transitions from the early mobile war to a trench driven warfare. I helped play test it when it was being designed by Kurt Keckley, and it is one of my favorites.
