"Very good article "La bataille de Denain… il y a 300 ans" par Jean-Louis Legens from "Gazette des Armes" Issue 446, Oct. 2012 (link). It's well-illustrated with photos of various arms…."

"Live" meaning the game will be complete in 2 hours. The tabletop is set with 2 armies, commanders view and send commands thought Whatapp or similar.
A game like "To Ur" with grid and igougo turn system would work, probably diplomacy might be fun???

I think game-mastered games could work well, and also allow for the fog of war as a result. The GM could carefully stage the playing area, and take pictures to send to each player showing a limited perspective of enemy movements.

Their was a wargames illustrated article about a game that had internet cameras in the generals bases, So they only saw what was near them.

Love to hear more ideas

This could be a hoot, and a way to game "remotely" with other gamers. Very useful for self-isolation.

I would not mess with "Commander's View" but just have one live feed of the battle and then messaging. GM rolls all the dice.

A grid based game like "To the Strongest" would be ideal. You could provide each player with a map and thus each square could be labeled. So "The heavy infantry in J7 will attempt to move to J5."

No confusion as to which unit, or to where it is going.

Of course you could add fog of war with hidden units. Instead of a unit put out a 3x5 card with an ID on it. Only the owning player knows what it is until spotted (with a die roll). Give each player some dummies just for fun.
