Have a bunch of WW2 games including Panzer Corp, Strategic Command WW2 and Order of Battle. How does this compare?

Other than being hex-based and turn-based with a WW2 theme, UoC was a near-total departure from the clapped-out Panzer General model. That's what makes it so good.

Both Panzer Corps and OoB were insulting and overpriced rehashes of a concept that reached its fullest potential with Pacific General over 20 years ago. OoB in particular is an exercise in attritional tedium. Panzer Corps brings nothing to the party and is, in terms of a series that emerged around the same time, as if Civ 6 had been released as Civ 1 reskinned with Civ 3 graphics.
