Any recommendations on which of the smaller campaigns is a good one to start with?

I really enjoyed the Drumbeat campaign. I did poorly, but still had fun.

Depends on whether you have enough experience with the system to go after a long-term effort with fewer boats or a shorter campaign with a lot. I'd recommend the former - it was how I got my feet wet with Silent War (the Dutch sub campaign) and it was nice to just have a small portion of the map to work with.

I like the longer campaigns with fewer boats because you feel like time is moving forward. With a lot of boats, a single turn can be a little overwhelming. I think that the 7th Fleet scenario would be particularly rewarding because it covers the entire war, but with a relatively small number of boats. If you organize by entry date, as I do, you can find the boats fairly quickly.
