The Diversionary RaidEdit
The player starts on a cliff overlooking a German base. After the British start a decoy on the other side of the camp, Sgt Davis and his team covertly move in on the trench network, and subsequently go loud, clearing out the enemy hardpoints, essentially just German bunkers. After purging all three bunkers of enemies, the player moves on and meets up with Captain Price. At this point, the player is tasked with eliminating a depot, which consists of five sets of explosive barrels and three ammo stockpiles. After destroying all the barrels and stockpiles, the player has one last task, to obtain enemy intel from another bunker. Once he clears out all of the enemies and grabs the intel, the player proceeds to exit the trenches and the mission ends.
Hold The LineEdit

Davis fights off some of the enemy infantry on the southwest side, before proceeding to defend the west flank of the town. Ater successfully fending off both attacks, the player then proceeds to the north side, and hold back a large wave of enemies from the north side. In spite of the enemies using a smoke screen, the player mans an MG42 and cuts down the rather large numbers of enemies coming through the smoke screen. After this, a tank column is starting to advance towards the town, and Davis and his men are forced to retreat to the top of the building to call in artillery strikes on the tanks. Once all the tanks are wiped out, the rest of the German forces are seen retreating, and the mission ends with the Allies' tank column arriving to reinforce the town defense.
