Tactical Notes : Troops & Units :
The tenacious resistance put up by Serbia against the Austrian
(and eventually German) invasion is legendary, and it should also be noted that
over 8% of Serbia's pre-war population was killed during the course of the war!
That figure does not include wounded or other casualties.
Troops and Units:
The orders of battle shown below
offer a list of average unit values in order to give 1916 players an idea of
how historical formations should be represented for game play. Real life units
varied in type, strength and quality, depending on their location and readiness
level. Overall, there were a huge variety of units created during the war, from
forestry battalions to assault companies. This prevents us from trying to list
them all, and players are encouraged to use these lists as guidelines for
creating other units they would like to use on the battlefield.
