Remember the satisfation of moving your units into the Ukraine in Risk? Or watching those remaining German tanks retreat into Ukraine S.S.R. when you launched the Russian counter attack back into Caucasus in Axis & Allies?

Oh yes, the feeling that you were a General in some HQ pushing units forward on a large map as you you inched closer to your enemies capital.

I miss that (but don't miss the problems/issues/brokeness of the above mentioned games).

So, what better developed and modern style wargames give you that feel of land (and sea zone) conquest? I don't mean just pushing someone off one hex or an abstract square into the next square.

I mean, pushing armies/units out of a geographical territories or national and regional borders, while your hordes coming screaming in.

There's no sea or air combat in this game, but commanding swarms of Russian infantry and armor as they push back the Germans...it's exhilarating!

Playing the Germans is very different, since you have to fall back across the map in good order while you wait for reinforcements - TENSE!

Nothing says "conquest" in quite the same way as rolling your panzers into London and then, about a year later, into Moscow. (I only did that once, in the one and only game of this I ever won.)

This image is about 1/4 of the map. And it doesn't take 60 hours to play. You can conquer the West and drive on Egypt on Friday night, invade Russia and be thrown back on Saturday, and fight the battle of Berlin on Saturday night. This is true grand strategy, with massive invasions and countries falling left and right.
