ORDER OF BATTLE of a given country, service, or field force consists of the identification, strength, command structure, and disposition of the personnel, units, and equipment of its constituted military forces.
The order of battle details the major commands and all the cascade of units and subordinate units under the control of those commands, listing as well the commanders and effective strengths of the various units at all levels.
Orders of battle may also include supporting forces, such as transportation units, escorts, replenishment and supply, surveillance and reconnaissance units and air support, which may not come under the command of the organization thus detailed, but provide essential services and augmentation of the supported unit's objectives in a campaign.

The end of battle option also automatically calculates the numbers of returning wounded and missing during the immediate aftermath of battle.
