History & Background (Dossier)
A "Marshal" was the officer for administering the army. Eventually, more than one "General" (each commanding an Army) was present in the field at one time, and the coordinating officer in overall charge was titled the "Field Marshal". The Imperial Army inherited this rank from the Rule of Man period.
