A little help please.
I just attempted to play one of Napoleon's historical battles for the first time. The historical battle I selected to play was Friedland.
To my astonishment, I discovered that I was allowed to control only a fraction of all the French units on the map. About three out of four French units on the map were locked; therefore I could do nothing to influence what they did. I attempted to fight the battle with the small number of French units I could control, but, within minutes, the large number of French units I couldn't control were ineffectual in responding to Russian attacks and were routed off the field. Minutes later, the small number of French units I could control were overwhelmed by Russian units converging from all over the field and were themselves routed.
What the heck?
What am I missing?
What's the trick for being successful in this game?
