FE7 brings up an interesting concept - the player as a tactician.

The one responsible for passing around orders, and win the battle thanks to his tactical acumen. Or something. The issue is that it works best for smaller battlefields (inside a castle, for example), where we can intepretate it as him/her shouting orders as the situation develops. In larger one, it comes down to perhaps a messenger of sorts (I am in favor of the pegasus knight).

For the most part, I would think the tactician as a strategist. Coming up with a plan for the battle prior to the engagement itself, and trusting the individual commanders/units to adapt to the tactical situation. A/a group of pegasus or wyvern knights could be doing battlefield recon, reporting back to the tactician and he will give orders if need be.

For other FEs though (like Magvel), I imagine it to be the high ranking people coming up with a plan during a strategic meeting, with messengers running between the different units if necessary, and the sergeants and commanders of each units to adapt to the conditions on the battlefield.
