sort of, as you don't start some of at the battle, and have to march to get there, or sort out a given proportion of your units to a given place, where the battle is or will be taking place, so planning, moving supply and getting into place is part of the game, in some of the battles, but yes not all.
Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, is also like this, while some are pure battles, others are getting to a given place and then starting a battle, how you get there and by which way or even starting in where it should have been in history, is your choice, like in both game, a given amount of freedom is given so you can do it anywhere, but you may loose the battle in the end if a given result isn't achieved etc
but yes i get your point also.
i was just making the point that this part is in both game
there was a lot of maneuvering of armies, sometimes to force a battle on a site of its choosing
