Question about issuing orders . . . Generals are rated by the number of orders they can issue. Got that. One, can orders continue from turn to turn without having to be re-issued? I note a few cases where issued orders are removed, but otherwise could a General able to issue two orders per turn, get his 4 unit command all under advance orders in two turns for example by issuing two advance orders each turn.

Two, Can an order be cancelled/removed for free?

No and no. Orders are for single turn and every unit requires an order to move though a general can give a follow me order to a line of troops. Orders can't be changed but a charge order that is no longer valid, ie target gone, converts to an advance order.

Excellent. Thanks. My supposition sounded too easy for a player but the alternate is a little rough but realistic. In effect, pick up all orders at end of turn.

So a buffoon general (can issue two orders) with a 4-unit command would need to move 2 units at a time (assume using tactical vs. strategic move).
