Commander: The Great War will still retain part of its old roots, such as the research points, bombard cities to affect production points from artillery trains and zepplins. National morale will also have an effect in the strategy, affecting recruitment and even leading to revolution within the nation.

Commander: The Great War will not allow players to invade North America
Let me correct that quickly. It's very well possible to invade North America, or at least the part that is visual on the campaignmap (East coast & large part of Canada). It's just extremely difficult due to gameplay mechanics such as efficiency loss for long naval voyages and supply difficulties once you manage to land on American soil. Not to mention the presence of US troops and fleet which might not appreciate your visit.
