If you have not played a previous TOAW game before?

First of all check out the 3 videos that will be accessible from the game's launcher. They will not teach you all the rules and intricacies, but they will get through the main points, and on how to get started with the UI.

Then you can check out the Tutorial and the 2 other learning scenarios in the "Tutorials" scenario folder. These will have extra documentation accessible from the scenario selection menu (like many other scenarios, by the way), which will offer step by step instructions and advice, so you can learn a lot.

If you want to just jump straight in, which is quite possible (and how I started with the series back with TOAW Century of Warfare), "Arracourt 44" in the WWIi West Front folder is a tiny scenario for when you only want to move a few units around.
Also a classic starter scenario (and also used by the Tutorial scenario as I recall), is Korea 50-51, in the "Modern - Asia" folder - it shows off a lot of the game, but it is fairly easy to manage.

Personally I have a recommendation list:

*Korea 50-51
*Anonymous Heroics
*Arracourt 44
*Kasserine 43 (use Axis Forces)
*Desert Storm 91 (use Coalition Forces)

These are some basic scenarios suitable for new-starters.

Korea was the tutorial in the 2nd game. I'm curious if that's still the case or if I should break out my old manual. Why is it in Asia modern? Seems to me its a tad old for modern.

Temporarily the scenario Korea 50-51 scenario exist in both folder TUTORIALS(as Tutorial) and folder Asia - Modern (as Korea 50-51).
I don't know why.

It exists so because the Tutorial uses the Korea 50 scenario, and it was clearer this way. :)

"Modern" is meant as everything post-WW2
