If you want a game that makes things as much like being on Ike’s staff as possible, two titles I’d suggest are Mark Herman’s “France 1944” (Victory Games) or Joe Balkoski’s “Against the Reich” (West End Games). As you can probably tell from the titles, the first covers the liberation of France, the second (a two-mapper) the whole NWE campaign. Both use dvision-level counters, but “France 1944” emphasises the role of HQs, and “Against the Reich” is big on logistics.

For more modern topics, “Gulf Strike” (Mark Herman and Victory Games again) puts a significant emphasis on logistics, and might do something of what you want.

All the best,
