"Our squadron is assigned to soften up Nijmegen in prep for drop tomorrow. We're the first off the strip so we'll lead the attack. Unfortunately that means we'll also be hitting the flak and anti-aircraft first."
— Flight Officer Paul Vanatta, Eight Air Force.

"Lucky Thirteen" is the fourth level of the American campaign in Call of Duty: Roads to Victory.


The player assumes the role of the gunner on a B-24 Liberator. The player's first task is to move forward to the nose of the plane and get in the turret. Once the player is in position, he will begin firing on the anti-aircraft balloons littering the sky.

German ME109s will come in from one o’clock. Fire on them, remembering to lead the player's target for the best chance to take them down during this '109 attack, one of your wingmen, Hell's Belle, will be shot down with no survivors.

If the player survives the attack, the player will begin taking anti-aircraft fire. The ball turret gunner is dead after a '109 took it down, so head there to help out. Unfortunately, the turret’s out of commission, and the guy who was be fixing it, Sergeant Waite, has been sucked out of the plane, so continue down the plane to the tail gun.

More 109s will attack from behind. Continue taking them out as before.

The ball turret has been repaired, so head back and man it. This position is more difficult to man, as the turret has to cover all 360 degrees around the player. Pay attention to the directions of the player's crew to know where bandits are coming from. Suddenly, a '109 comes in high at the front and kills the Captain.

The player is back in the nose now, as the plane prepares to make its bombing run. Dangerous Dan is now the lead plane, to the player's left. Make sure he’s defended by taking out any fighters attacking it. Take out the 109s attacking Dangerous Dan. Later, your bomber started the bomb run. Your ally will say that the bombay is jammed. You have to clear the bombay before your bomber will drop the bombs. After you cleared the bombay, your bomber will drop the bombs and ready to attack Netherlands. The mission will end immediately.
