This only works with countries that have officers and drummers.
when you start the game, quickly spread out a little and find places where you can build walls (only the wooden ones). For the best results, have at least two barracks. Make your gunmen (musketeers, grenadiers etc) and an officer and drummer. Put them into a line formation. The bigger the better, and the less officers and drummers you have to pay for.
Now move them to the wall so they're right next to it (as well as facing). Set them to stand guard mode and they will get an extra 3 defense. It's also best to beef up security even more with a few towers behind them, and well upgraded, or have a multi-barreled cannon in between the formations.
There is nothing worse than having a large army of mercenaries, or a whole fleet of battleships, only to have them start a mutiny because you have run out of gold. Make sure you have enough gold to pay them, plus additional coal and iron for your units so they can create fires. Then there is also food so your units dont starve, plus stone and wood to maintain your walls.
