I have a question. Before the bullets start flying, my little soldiers follow my commands exactly. But, when the battle begins, they don't do anything I say. I will send them somewhere and they will just stand there. I understand they should be a little uncooprative with their lives at stake, but they don't do anything I tell them? How can I win a battle when my own soldiers won't follow my orders?

You are correct, they won't move when under direct fire. That is commonly known as non-suicidal behaviour and a major pain in the rear for all commanders. The trick here is to throw more lead at the enemy than he can throw at your boys. Following the same logic your enemy then will have to cease shooting at you for a while enabling you to move your troops.
Well, there are a few other things to do, too, like having the squad in question eaten by the enemy while you move around behind the next hill with the rest or so. The basic point remains: they frankly don't give a damn about your orders while under fire.
This doesn't only account for your troops being afraid (?Hey, my company wouldn't be scared, would it??) but also other adverse effects like difficulties of actually passing on the orders (all those guns and explosions kind of make some noise), overall confusion and so forth.

Well... I'm sure some of the others guys around here, who are way more competent commanders than me, will be around soon and provide you with more specific advice. I'm slightly confused myself right now.

Why can one squad suppress my entire army? If my guys were even slightly competent, they would wipe the enemy squad from the map.

It works for the same reason that one machine gun nest can hold a crossroads against an infantry company for quite a while, and the same reason why a couple guys can hijack an airplane against over a hundred. Fear.
