What if, when selecting a general for a front, you could preview their plans to accomplish the goal?
This general plans to take this route while the other general believes it should be done going that way?
I'm thinking whether there should be a system where the AI staff presents some general offensive warplans for the player and the player gets to select from those plans. The plans could be some sort of city targets (e.g. the capital, other major strategic cities), general front priorities (concentrate on the left, centre, right). The plan would then be in effect for a set time, until the goal is reached, until the offense bogs down or if there is major loss of territory in another section of the front, which would then allow player to select new plan to react to that or continue offensive elsewhere.
So as Germany you could involve the neutral Belgium into the war, then select plan to attack towards Paris along the right flank, which would then see your troops concentrate on attacking Belgium and from there onwards to France.
