Old post, still helping new players! +1

You may be disappointed with what you find. The majority of the advice here is no longer accurate. A great deal has changed since the original HoI3 game. If you do not own any of the expansions (it looks like you don't), then still only some of the advice is accurate since patch 1.4 changed quite a bit.
