Right-click on "Hearts of Iron III" in your games library and select "View Downloadable Content". Everything listed in that window is what Steam thinks you own for it.

Select the Local Files tab and click Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

After that, everything should be downloaded and installed. Launch the game and if the main menu says Semper Fi at top then the expansion is installed. To see the new map sprite packs you need to zoom in on the map very close to the units to see them (and have them enabled in the game options).

Have fun - its a great game!

hey thanks, so i checked out the "view downloadable content" have 9 items in there.
Ran a "verify integrity of game cache", came back saying one items needs to validate and will be reacquired. Then i'm assuming it does cause it downloads a small HOI3 file like 677 bytes.
so I start up HOI3 the sempi fi background is there, look into options no way to turn on/off add-ons or any of the DLC. Also opened up a game and looked in the options in-game.... nothing.
Am I just retarted hahah can can't find it?
