The European army came into existence during the desperate times of the conflict with the Soviet Union. Much like the European Alliance itself, the European army combined the expertise and strengths of each of the national armies. Dutch Marines, French Foreign legionnaires, Bulgarian mountain corps all came to serve in one single army, each fighting force bringing with itself a set of skills and expertise but also a set of new challenges.
The main challenge was to establish a chain of command, a post that all soldiers will treat with respect and would obey unquestionably even in the fiercest battles and heaviest assaults. Thus was established the Collegia Praefectae, the officer school of the European Army. A new type of officer would be required, one that embraced the idea of the whole of Europe being his homeland.
Officers were scouted from a very young age and were recruited once they reached a suitable age and academic success. Subjected to an extremely demanding training program designed to weed out the weak as soon as possible, so that only the most skilled candidates become officers. Training includes many disciplines taught by the different armies – Swiss organizational planning, German tank command, British infantry exercises and French artillery training. This rigid training regime ensured that the officers are well versed in the tactical advantages or limitations that the multinational European armies could offer.
When an officer is attached to a platoon, the results become apparent immediately – efficiency, fire rate and activity is increased. The officer is also empowered to call and artillery strike on a particularly heavily fortified position.
