Thanks, this is what I thought.
It seems unrealistic and ahistorical though, particularly when you consider how the Germans mixed their troops with the Italian forces (corset laced them amongst them) to make a more cohesive fighting force in the North African campaign.
That's true, but you have to make the best of it. I keep track of important combats and objectives on a 'Notepad' window, so that I can remember to make use of units from allies that move later in the turn. It sometimes helps to take the pressure off your major nation units, if you can move lesser allied units later in the turn to 'clear up' and 'fill in' where required.
Not ideal, but you can get some co-ordinated use out of the units, with a little forward planning.
