Combat and call recruits

I got this game as a rental and I played previous ones.

I don't have a grasp on the combat techniques in this one, it seems like I am easily defeated by a bunch of redcoats (I am in sequence 6). Also, I am unsure how to call my Assassin. I only have one (some French chef), can I call him when I am in the frontier?
