How does one even begin to learn how to play "Gary Grigsby's War in the East"?

I've played Panzer Corps, Order of Battle and Hearts of Iron IV [mostly with Total War mod]. They all have, to different degrees, an expected learning curve. Been craving something different, so after some searching around, I decided that it appears "War in the East" may be the definitive game on the German/Russian theater of the war. Surely, I can figure it out.

So, I shelled out the rather large payment for the game, So far, I have been able to sit and stare at the opening campaign screen. I have absolutely no clue.

Now what? Can anyone point me to "the best, yet simple & clear," guide to learning how to get started with this game?

The Matrix forum has a very good collection of posts on this game - they are the original publisher. There is a newbie's guide and quite a few people who can help you.
