I have been playing RUSE recently and am trying each nation. I find that playing the Germans seems to suit my play style best. But I have been smashed by the French and Russians. What are the most appropriate game-play styles for each nation in multiplayer ?
First off, its all about play style. The best faction is the one that best matches you! For example, if you like aerial units, the United Kingdom is the way to go.
I will try my best to match RUSE factions with other factions from other strategy games to draw similarities. Please note I do not consider this a great answer but unlike Starcraft 2 which has three races, Ruse has 6 which makes strategy more player dependent.
Think Terran from Starcraft or Orange Star from Advance Wars.
Think Protoss from Starcraft or Yellow Comment from Advance Wars
Think Kanbei (Yellow Comet) from Advance Wars
Think Eagle (Green Earth) from Advance Wars
Think Grit (Blue Moon) from Advance Wars...kinda
Think Zerg from Starcraft, Colin (Blue Moon) from Advance Wars, or any faction that emphasis micro over macro

I think Germany may be the best. It is expensive, but just buy a secondary base around depots and you're all set.
But be very careful what you buy. One good thing about their airplanes are that they are very fast. That's why I like their fighters and bombers, though. Their prototype is very good though. I like their whirlwinds. Their panzers are not worth it in the armor base unless you have over 8, you're all right.
Your worst enemy might be either Russia or UK because of their air and artillery. Your control might be Italy.
On center gravity and control the center if you can with a secondary headquarters.
Germany has expensive and unorganized stuff. Russia may not be as strong, but suits me well. Cheap barracks, expensive research on heavy infantry, but tough, cheap and armored AA, strong tanks and long range and very accurate, Russia could be the most helpful nation in 1939 too. I also think they have okay aircraft as well.
America also has the most absolutely best Anti-Air and tanks, try their armor artillery M40, it's amazing! Their bases are balanced, tanks, AA, and artillery, just never try to play against Italy, as you don't stand a chance. The Pershing is far range and the most powered heavy out there, other than the King Tiger. $40 to purchase and $75 to research.
