Press - very high degrade rate on units attack and defense value, coming out of press a unit would take a long time to regenerate those values back to its max. Highest ramovement bonus, lowest zone of control, lowest los

Battle - no degradation on attack and defense, slight bonus to max, slight movement penalty, low los, normal zone of control

Skirmish - No degradation on attack/defense, no bonus. Highest los, normal , large zone of control

Column - very slow attack/defense degradation, high movement bonus, slight los penalty, slight zone of control penalty.

And in which order does they found themselves from left towards right ? What's los, level of supply ? What do you mean with slight bonus to max in battle's description ?

The orders on the far left (the dotted arrows) are for Pressed and Column. The avoid combat and have the least benefit to combat efficiency.

The button that looks like a circle drawing is Skirmish mode. It's a good balance between movement speed and combat efficiency. Your troops will walk in a circle formation.

The final button is Combat (?). The base of the unit will organize as a line, with your captain + support elements behind it. It has the highest combat effiiciency, but it is slower and has less control (the zone in which a company will engage an enemy).

LOS = line of sight.

Pressed doesn't actually affect defense, and it's not so much bonuses as it is percentage of the max value. For instance, Combat formation gives you 100% attack value, but you move at only 55% of your max speed. Skirmish is 80% and 68%, respectively. You can find these values by hovering over the buttons for a second or two.
