I am using DOSBox .74 with DosShell 1.7 'frontend' to run these old games, including 'War in Russia', 'Pacific War' and the earlier 'Western Front' in Windows 7 and Windows 10, no problems with speed, all works normally.
What DOSBox can do is slow the system down to match the old games, which might otherwise process too fast in modern faster computers, but speed is adjustable, here is a DOSBox Manual excerpt on speeding up.
Graphics emulation (speed up)
VGA emulation is a demanding part of DOSBox in terms of actual CPU usage.
Increase the number of frames skipped (in increments of one) by pressing
CTRL-F8. Your CPU usage should decrease when using a fixed cycle setting,
and you will be able to increase cycles with CTRL-F12.
You can repeat this until the game runs fast enough for you.
Please note that this is a trade-off: you lose in fluidity of video what
you gain in speed.
However, using DosShell I have never had to make any speed adjustments.
