You better play this game under DosBox. The game itself is not realistic but it's the MOST PLAYABLE ever seen.
Remember that there is a bug, the second time you play France scenario it will be impossible to have a Decisive Victory, anyway it's well known that in France scenario it's better have a minor victory after haveing conquered all cities and left only a crippled ship to enemy to gain max experience and prestige.
The game mechanic is simple, playing the game to reach a decisive victory in USA is another matter.
Many believes that you have to choose tanks looking at attack value, that is fully wrong, in this game initiative is more important su if you choose Panzer IV you'll always lose against enemy armor while the Panzer III will be more effective even if the values are less than the "IV".
Another thing is to have seven eng. inf. units, it'll take time, but if you play good you'll have them in France scenario.
Another important trick I use in early scenarios is Heavy Flak starting in the most difficult battle, Norway.
In norway buy a 88 Flak as soon as you take a city, your fighter are too green and too weak to attack enemy fighters while they'll work good when attacked, so encircle enemy planes with your fighters but do not attack them, take Flak at three exes or less and shoot in the next turn, if you're lucky with bad weather you'll stop enemy planes enough to leave them without fuel.
This works until you'll upgrade to FW190 with at least two star experience.
Another word about the scenario sequence. Play with Decisive Victory until France, win it at last turn than go for Balkans, Creete and go on, you'll have a lot of time to rise prestige and upgrading units and get experience as well.
More to say but I have the time to say that I still play Panzer General after so many years and I still enjoy it.

Dos version works perfect in win 10 64 bit even. You need to run it off a command line inside the Dosbox program is all.

I played the DOS version since 1994 and it's probably the best all round war-game ever made. This is the game to play to get ANYONE into war /strategy games. Good learning curve and right balance of strategy and playability.
I didn't realize a windows version existed, just downloaded it and it even works on Win10 64bit (unfortunately the Dos version does not).
There is a lot of interesting words in the source code of this one. "English-Sheep-Shaggers" is mentioned often and criticism of EA etc.

Everyone seems to think this game is sooooo cool, but it is impossible! I can get to level two, but as many games, it gets impossible after the first level. AND THAT'S ON EASY! AND ONLY THE SECOND LEVEL! I think you guys are crazy! There is no way anyone can be that good! I give this game a one star, five if it was possible!

Amazing game! Hours and hours of play.

One of the most repayable games ever, I'd suggest looking for Panzer General II, however, as there are literally hundreds of user created campaigns that you can play, and thousands of military units to use.

PGI is a well thought out strategy game. It basically computerized the older board games that featured the same hexagonal board, dice, and tiles; adding some corny animations and sounds. I think its simplicity makes it timeless and endlessly playable.

It`s very cool;)
