I'm looking for a game that offers World War 1 or 2 game play that spans the globe like Axis and Allies is good to look at but not too complex. I'm not looking for squad level combat. No out of print games or PnP.

I have Heroes of Normandie (love this) and I had Memoir '44 (traded) and have Warfighter WW2 arriving soon. Tide of Iron was on my wishlist forever but was taken off due to complexity and FFG let it go.

A lot of what I see out there is squad based. Is there an alternative to Axis and Allies?

Never played it, but from what I have heard and seen, Quartermaster General might be worth checking out.

Quartermaster General does all of World War II in a relatively short period of time (2-3 hours?) and is best with 6 players. It is somewhat abstract, and it uses a lot of card play.
