If a general is doing his job correctly his orders given before and during the battle will play a decisive role in achieving the desired victory. But this aspect is often overlooked or oversimplified on the games table, reducing orders to a series of fixed actions that form the phases of a battle. But when orders are placed central to command and control in a game they can often lead to some unexpected results. The Fog of War can creep in and keeping control can be much harder than expected... and a lot more fun.
