Why are all my soldiers so ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥?
I can't make them go where I want, they don't shoot the enemy and they get lost all the time. What am I doing wrong?

You're not doing anything wrong. The AI is dumb as ♥♥♥♥ but enemy AI can shoot you like god.

You have to spot the enemy first.
And they have to have line of sight to shoot them as well.

If your having trouble getting them to hit there targets give them the engage order and they should break formation and move into a better angle.
Though there is risk in this.

Are you actually commanding the AI or just letting them follow you around from the start?

If you use the AI command structure via the [~] key and the [1-9] keys you can control them, change formation, give commands, and set their fire mode, I would suggest engage at will with a line formation, once you have the hang of it you can co-ordinate fire via the tiddle key and the AI should move and engage (works 60% of the time). AI gunner controls are good, but infantry is ♥♥♥♥ I know.

the simple fact is you have to tell them what to do.

Position 2 as over watch,order another 2 to flank L/R, play around with it.
I use Hold Fire and Stop cos otherwise the dumb smucks will fire on site.
And if you have AT in your sqaud take the launcher off him cos he's useless.

You have to command them to do things. Press "~" and then press the number key 1 to 10, find out yourself.
BTW, they are pretty lethal too, just like AI opponents can headshot through trees. So use them to your advantage.
