Mark Hayes' Cover table for WW1.

Infantry is given a "Field Craft Rating" (FCR) corresponding to their expertise and training.
Most infantry in 1914 would have an FCR of 1 and those in 1918 a 3 (corresponding to WWII levels).
A FCR of 2 could be for British, French, German, and Serbian infantry in 1915, and everybody else in 1916.
British, German, and French infantry could have a FCR of 3 in 1917, but everybody else rates a 2.
