It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

In CK2 it is possible to manually appoint somebody who will be in charge of the whole army consisting of several hosts from different counties, duchies and etc. How it works in CK1?
For example I want to have famous Rodrigo Dias de Vivar to command my army consisting of several hosts. One of this hosts is some petty duke of Leon and he is in charge of my forces. Can I manually appoint a leader of combined forces?
How the chain of command actually works during the battle? Main commander is giving a bonuses only to his own regiment or to a whole army? Please clarify.

I found no answer in manual which is totally obsoleted.
