All of the above, particularly WWII.
Many of my favorites were from GDW (Game Designers Workshop), including Europa (WWII Europe) series. Several of the Europa series games proved interesting played as stand-alone campaigns - Poland 1939, Norway 1940, another game (Marita-Merkur) combining the spring 1941 campaigns in Yugoslavia and Greece (excluding Crete). Play balance in these games not what you'd expect, a (usually) inevitable German win but far from a "cakewalk". GDW also had a decent campaign game covering France and the Low Countries in 1940. And of course... Drang Nach Osten and its sequel (Untenscheiden).
I have all of the Europa series except Norway and Unetscheiden, although I do have the replacement game Scorched Earth along with the replacement for DNO, Fire in the East.
GDW was eventually superceded by GRD (Game Research Design). I think at least one of my Europa games was published by GRD.
The first wargame I played was Kreigspiel by AH, followed by Blitzkrieg.
It was the third game I learned that I really cut my teeth on and led me to make my first purchase, Panzer Blitz.
I wore out the counter mix on three AH Russian Campaign games and played Third Reich every Friday night with my local wargame cell for almost 15 years straight.
Managed to get my name (real name: Merrill Wright) published in the design Credits of Advanced Third Reich as a playtester.
