France has 11 generals and 2 admirals at the beginning of the game

Each Leader (General / Admiral) is randomly assigned one Background and one Personality when he is created. These traits are applied to whatever army or fleet the leader is assigned to. Traits can affect the following:

  • Organisation: Percentage modifier to the unit's maximum organization.
  • Morale: Percentage modifier to the unit's morale. Morale increases the speed with which your units regenerate organization.
  • Attack: Modifier to dice rolls when the unit is attacking.
  • Defense: Modifier to dice rolls when the unit is defending.
  • Reconnaissance: Modifier to reconnaissance (per unit?). Reconnaissance increases your occupation speed and reduces the enemy's bonus from digging in.
  • Speed: Percentage modifier to unit speed.
  • Experience: Percentage modifier to unit experience gain.
  • Reliability: Modifier to soldier POP militancy.

Recruitment

The percentage of the POP type officers of the total population affect how many leadership points a nation gets pr. month. The cap is 3 leadership points pr. month, which is achieved if 0.2% of the population is officers.

When a nation has 20 leadership points it can recruit a general or admiral. The westernization reform 'Officer training' also gives a positive modifier to leadership points.

The recruitment and/or assignment can either be controlled manually or be automated.
