Some cards make references to "soldier" units.
Does this mean infantry units or battlefield units in general?

That means soldier, not tank.
All bombers, mortars, infantry are soldier - some of them just have special equipment.

Units = Everything
Battlefield Units = Units on the board
Soldiers = Units with soldier pieces (including crewman); i.e. battlefield units that are not tanks.

Thanks guys. It all makes sense now.
I didn't think about the tanks since I'm just getting started with the base game.

You will find the rules also mention "infantry."

Infantry are the Soldiers who are not mortars or MGs.

Currently that is just rifle or bomber units.

To clarify the reason for my slight confusion. I noticed the rulebook on several places use the term "Command & Colors WW1" which I assume was the working title of the game and then accidentally left in the rules text. So that made me wonder if "soldier" was a working title for what then became defined as "infantry" with "soldier" still sticking around on some cards.
