What are the victory conditions? How can you check if you win or lose or draw?

Hi Fredi,
You set the victory conditions in agreement with your opponent as part of the scenario for the game. Each side can be set a mission it must achieve to be victorious as in the example scenario on page 101, such as capturing a specific objective. If you are basing the game on an historic event then you might want to set the players an objective to do better than their historic counterparts.
For a simple encounter scenario you could set a time limit with the winner being whichever side has broken the most enemy units or brigades.

I haven't tried it yet but I would expect the published scenarios for other divisional level rules such as General de Brigade should work fine for GDA.

From your friendly neighbourhood wargames rules supplier, but failing that you could try Caliver Books who published GdB. Try here for the first set, there are others listed on their website.
