(shortened version) We show that many observations of W44, a supernova remnant in the galactic plane at a distance of about 2500 pc, are remarkably consistent with the simplest realistic model. The model remnant is evolving in a smooth ambient medium of fairly high density, about 6 cm^-3 on average, with a substantial density gradient. At the observed time it has an age of about 20,000 years, consistent with the age of the associated pulsar, and a radius of 11 to 13 pc. Over most of the outer surface, radiative cooling has become important in the post shock gas; on the denser end there has been sufficient compression of the cooled gas to develop a very thin dense half shell of about 450 M_sun, supported against further compression by nonthermal pressure. The half shell has an expansion velocity of about 150 km s^-1, and is bounded ...
