There's nothing like it. Relatively small rules overhead outlines a sandbox that proves to be both historically plausible and narratively palpable. Lots of what if scenarios are open to the players: what if Germany never attacked Poland? France? What if Russia went to war with the Allies? What if Turkey was occupied by the British? What if the US entered the war 2 years early? Or two years late? Brilliant deep but simple diplomacy system. Lots of tension between maintaining defense and working towards mobilizing your army while also struggling to build industry and extend diplomatically. Each move you make gives more reason for your would be opponents to strike before it's too late.
