Cutscene transcript[]

Axis: We have incoming US paratroopers men, they'll be going after the 88's and the command bunker. Set up defenses immediately!


Official description[]

 Allied Objectives:
 Destroy the Cannons!  OR  Destroy the Radio Room!
 Allies must either destroy the two 88mm flak cannons in the field 
 next to the château OR destroy the Axis radio room located in the
 castle to win. Axis must defend these targets at all costs. 
 Either target-set can be destroyed by placing explosive charges
 near the targets themselves. Allies must use first tnt to blow 
 holes in the castle wall to get to the radio room. You must wait 
 for the timer when placing explosives. 
 Allies only have to destroy one of the two target-sets in 10 minutes
 or less to win. Axis wins by defending for 10 min or by destroying 
 the allied assault party. Axis can destroy the bridge over the lake
 to hinder allied advance.
