If that's the case, might I reccomend Supreme Ruler: Cold War? It's similar to games based on the EU in their general play style (diplomacy, trading, etc.) however there is a greater military focus and it is on a much larger and direct scale. Whereas battles in EUIII might come on the form of 20 or so units battling over 1 space of territory, in the Supreme Ruler games you may have thousands of units fighting on multiple fronts you determine.
There are some links for the demo on the Battlegoat website: http://www.battlegoat.com/demo_SRCW.php
I have Supreme Ruler 2020, but haven't gotten to play much of Cold War past the demo... what I did play though, was an improvement over 2020.
