I'd say go for the newly-released 'CC:The Bloody First' because it's got a 3D oblique angle view option (below) which makes you feel as if you're right in there among the men..:)
(All the other games in the series are only 2D top-down view)
PS- you can change the Bloody First 'PITCH' angle in the Data > MAPVIEW file to suit your own preference, I set it to 20 in this pic (the higher the number the more you look down towards your feet). Hit key 'L' to cycle through the other 2 default views and roll the mouse wheel to zoom in/out..:)-

Start with Gateway to Caen. Its the typical CC series format. Panthers in the Fog has...well fog. The new Bloody First is 3D and that is a mistake. People liked the top down 2D Close Combat for a reason. Last Stand Arnhem needs updating.The game setup and map realism is awesome but the gameplay has been vastly improved with titles like "Gateway to Caen".
