I got CoH about a month ago and have been playing it all the time. I got familar with all the parts to the game, but for some reason I just suck. I mean I can't get a defense going against a hard, I just suck. My strategy is build like 3 or 4 engineer groups and go capture points then have on group sit back and wait to build base structures. I will build weapons support before barracks, I really don't like barracks for some reason, and make a couple of machine gun teams. I try and put OP on the good points to keep them going longer so I will have some resources. I try and build AT's and throw machine gun nests as defenses around my base and then will venture out when I have a good light armor group going. I just don't get the strategy to this game I guess.
