Nuts! WWII skirmish rules

After browsing through a bunch of game systems for WWII, I finally settled my choice on Nuts! by Two Hour Wargames. I downloaded the PDF rulebook and it looks like an awesome system. It appears to blend a few RPG elements (campaigns, character advancement, reaction rolls) into a miniature wargame. It also contains army lists for Germany, USSR, USA and UK, including armor. Here’s the description of the game from the THW website:
