Phillip White from Bessemer, AL United States
Eastern Front: 1914-1917 is a outstanding wargame and a great introduction to the Der Weltkrieg series. The included scenarios vary widely in size and number of units involved on each side, so you can get used to the system with one of the smaller scenarios (Serbia or Romania) and then go for the full effect with one of the larger scenarios (Galicia or the Brusilov Offensive), or really begin to appreciate the full scope of the game system by combining multiple scenarios together, culminating in the Duration Game, which combines all the scenarios and allows you to simulate the entirety of World War One on the Eastern Front at the divisional level.
This is truly a monster game, but it is extremely approachable. The rule system is surprisingly easy to pick up for a game of this size, yet it simulates the reality of World War One conflict extremely well. I cannot recommend this game enough! If you have any interest in the First World War, this game is a must-have! 10 out of 10!
