I use Drive on Metz in my undergrad college classes - it is an excellent introduction not only to wargaming but also as a simulation to get students thinking about command. I usually set up three US teams and 2 German, and make them play through the game. It is one thing for them to read about battles, but actually making them think about where to commit units and how to combine them for effective attacks really helps to deepen their understanding of history.

Agree. There is a fair amount of depth here despite the small size. It is a great game to teach beginners and a nice 'filler' for experienced gamers.
