One Tank Too Far

Braeden & I just finished his first game of Axis & Allies: D-Day... and I (playing the Germans) won at the end of turn nine because I held off a combined force of Brits & Americans (Braeden) at St. Lo. A single tank survived the final onslaught to keep him from reaching his objective.

I really like this game - it's a great "training wheels" game to teach basic wargaming skills.

From a training wheels perspective... how does it compare to Memoir '44?

I've found Memoir '44 to be pretty easy to teach/play because your card hand limits your options.

A&A:D-Day is one of those "move all your pieces if you want" wargames - but there are only 3 types of land units (infantry, armor & artillery) and the game phases are on individual cards to make it easier to work your way through the game.
