Military Leadership

Will Vainglory of Nations allow the player to assign different historical generals and admirals to their armies and fleets? If so, will we be able to debate the various skills and qualities?

A variable amount of turns would be great...... For instance a concussion might result in the general being available the next turn (Think Heth at Gettysburg). Amputations and other severe injuries could result in anything from a couple of turns to 6-9 months (Think Ewell after 2nd Bull Run Campaign).
