The Orders

There are four basic orders you can give a unit:

  1. Hold
  2. Move
  3. Support
  4. Convoy

Hold

The "Hold" order has the army stay in place for the turn. Units that receive no orders automatically default to a hold order.

Move

The move order allows the unit to move one space to a viable target province. If contact is made with the enemy, we'll refer to this as an attack, but the order is simply "move"

Support

With a support order, your unit lends it's combat powers to another.  In this case, one army supports the hold order of the other.  You must specify the type of order you are supporting and that order's target.

In this case one army is supporting the move order of another.  The support order needs to say who is being supported, what kind of action the supported unit is taking, and to where.  (ex: Army Silesia supports Army Bulgaria's move to Rumania)

The support order is by far the most complex.  Here is more information on giving support and cutting it.

Convoy

Fleets can transport armies across the water with a "convoy" order.
