Officer Detail Form - Create Army List

 

The Army List represents of database of General Officers and Combat Units. Various historical lists have been prepared as companions to the basic system to reflect the composition of different forces engaged in particular battles or campaigns. The basic system comes pre-loaded with two army lists.

The Order of Battle represents a database of General Officers and Combat Units selected from two or more army lists that you wish to engage in a table-top wargame scenario.

Utilities: With the following options, Environmental conditions, Army Initiative, Scouting, Naming of Armies and Battle, presetting Formations, Fatigue, Ammunition and Reserve and Flank Forces.

Army Initiative and morale is a barometer of an army's relative combat worthiness in comparison to its opponent. It is affected by the individual combat units relative strengths, fatigue and morale condition and active General Officers leadership and tactical qualities. If one army's morale is sufficiently low and lower than its opponent, then the result will be the progressive reduction in individual combat units morale status. However this downward spiral can be slowed and even reversed by the arrival of friendly off-table reserves, or improvement in individual units fatigue and morale levels.

Command and Control: With the following options, Reviewing command structures, by commands or individual units or officers, Reassignment of individual officers or combat units, and Issuing of combat orders. Each of these options can be accessed at any time during the course of the game.

Combat orders will affect a commands ability to engage in different forms of combat, individual unit initiative relates directly to the units commanding officers direct orders. General Officers can directly influence a combat units effectiveness during engineering, movement, fire, combat, rally and end of turn phases. The positioning of General Officers becomes an important aspect of combat, however, placing any officer in harms way may ultimately result in his untimely injury or loss. General Officers may suffer minor, serious, or mortal wounds and may be captured in combat.

Battle: With the following options, Engineering, Movement, Fire, Close Combat, Rally and End of Turn Phases. See Game Sequence page for description of battle phases

Post Battle: With the following options, Victory Status, either current or end of battle, Resetting of Order of Battle and Reconstitution of Army Lists. See Post-Battle Options page for descriptions of features.
