Well, the first mission of WWII is a good start because it does not have any vehicles, except for a Jeep which you can ignore (at least I never used it...).

WWII is the easier of the 3 campaigns.

You can start anywhere, but you'll get blown up reeeeeeeaaallll easy .

I just started Korea again for the umpteenth time and am still having trouble figuring out how to move around the terrain. It's a hilly mess with little cover. Bring a lot of smoke if you can....

I third the others responses, play at least one WWII mission to get a handle on the rules. There's a lot of nuanced rules and unique situations you'll be referencing the rulebook and the forums to get answered. I'd recommend getting a feel for; the PDF/VOF system, command structure/communication, asset allotments and experience modifiers then move on to any mission that suits your fancy.

Cheers
