I've recently decided breaking the war down into a Theater/campaign/battle/units-leaders order allows me to gain a little clearer picture of whatever is grabbing my interest at the time. First a good overall study, then a more detailed campaign view, then the individual battles, and finally if any particular unit or leader intrigues me I study them as well. I don't always adhere to this formula since I-like many here-am prone to get distracted by something new that catches my fancy. Also this method depends on the availability of material at the time I begin. For instance I may not be able to find anything on a battle for a while so I go ahead and read about a unit. Or i might not be able to find a good detailed campaign study but I do have a battle book etc.
