See http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3148306&mpage=1&key= and I duplicated this too.
Start scenario with Entente as Computer, which means it goes first and you don't ave to do anything. When Entente finishes moving the screen just displays the Entente End of Scenario Victory Briefing. Hitting 'End Turn' just repeats this.
Try as Entente versus German Computer. Once you hit end turn as Entente, same thing. Computer vs Computer and Hotseat, same thing. As soon as Entente finishes turn, scenario shows as over. PBEM saves a file, but then when you load to play turn 1 as Germany, ditto first thing- Entente End of Scenario Victory Briefing.
There are only 6 events, none of which would cause this (IMO)- 1xNews, 2xTheater Recon, 2xRail Transport, 1xStrategic Bias.
TOAW III v126.96.36.199, Win 7 SP1, everything else (and all other scenarios) has been running (loading) fine since install of 188.8.131.52 at least a year ago.
Got to play this with Old Turn Order. There are no German forces on the map at the start of the game. In New Turn Order, they don't arrive till the German player turn, and the game is lost (due to no German land units on the map at the end of the Entente player turn) before they can be put on the map.
It works in Old Turn Order, though.
