I have gotten the impression that the rules and scenario book that came with Third Reich should not be used and I should be using the Third Edition The Second World War rules that came with my new copy of Great War in the Pacific.

I read somewhere that scenario book that came with the Third Reich rules is wrong, but the The World War Scenario book only have scenarios for both games. What should I be using if I just want to play Third Reich (Europe)?

There is a new, separate scenario book for Third Reich alone that was realeased at the same time as the third edition rules. It does have a couple of changes that I recall, notably some starting diplomatic levels. I recommend that, but you could still play a game using the old scenario book.

I believe the website has a living rules book.

From memory...

The first edition rules are playable, but there are a few places where they are not clear - I do not recall where/what these are.

Second edition was mostly about answering questions and making things clearer. Some parts of the diplomatic rules were changed a bit.

The third edition rules are a little cleaner (fewer question) and combat has been made more consistent in terms of affects.

I´ve downloaded the new rules to renew my old John Prados' Third Reich, but I´ve read that I need the 3rd edition scenario book and charts. Does anyone know where I can get them?

Thanks in advance.
