How many soldiers?

Hi, I’m new about Band of Blades and i have just begun reading the manual.
I’m not sure how many soldiers there are at the begin of the game. Anyone can help me?

generic soldiers: 5 specialists (generated by players and the Marshal), plus 6 squads of Rookies (30). There are no specific Soldiers (playbook) at the start - you have to promote a Rookie.

Thanks for your answer!

Thanks for the tip
