I'm actually surprised that they're sticking with the European theater. There's a lot of other options during WW2. Eastern front is interesting to be sure, but there's also the African campaign, the Italian campaign, not to mention the entire Pacific Theater.

Africa would have been great, it's always neglected in media representation. Some great battles in that for the singleplayer scenarios - Tobruk, El Alamein, etc.

Exactly. It'd allow for a different style of story too.

As is they won't probably reflect the nature of the Russian military in WW2. I imagine that the game will be zerg vs protoss basically, ignoring the idea that the Russians weren't incompetent at the soldier level per se, but Stalin having purged the officer's ranks again and again made for a kind of jacked up chain of command that wasn't particularly efficient.

In the board game Memoir '44 there's actually a pretty cool, simple rule to reflect this. Normally you can play one order per turn, and it goes off in that turn. Russians/Commissar rules state that you play next turn's orders this turn. So on turn 2 you start by executing Turn 1's order, move your units/battle, and then issue an order that will not execute until next turn.
