Everything that happens on the campaign strategy map has ramifications on the battle map and vice versa. For example, if you ambush Hannibal crossing the Alps, your legions will be forced to fight in snowy, mountainous terrain, and likely suffer for it. Likewise, if you lay siege to a city, burning the buildings during battle, you'll need to rebuild those charred remains afterwards.
