As the description says, you will get this for completing 50 straight battles in Ambition Mode.
You will likely get this when going for the larger goal of 100 straight battles. Why go after 100 battles when the achievements stop at 50 you ask? It's because you need to do 100 battles to get the War Elephant mount for the Animal Collector achievement.

These goals may sound daunting, but they are fairly easy. However, you want to be properly prepared for it, otherwise this will take far longer than it should.

Before you start your run you should:
1) Acquire all symbols beforehand. By getting these out of the way ahead of time, you avoid getting drawn into the duels, which would take far longer to complete if they are happening at battle 21 instead of 3.
2) Have a high level character. It's not because you'll need to worry about being hit, but because once you get past battle 10, the enemies will have obscene amounts of health, even on beginner. Use a character you like using or feel most comfortable with. If you're having trouble deciding, pick a person who is known for being overpowered like Lu Bu or Zuo Ci or pick a person with a really focused musou attack, such as Dian Wei.
3) Have a good weapon, preferably 4 or 5 stars. This is related to the above point. Enemies have stupid large health, and the faster they die, the quicker it'll be.
4) Make sure you have room in your stable. While doing this, you'll get all three good horses, plus the elephant and you don't want to not get them. You can also swap your mount mid run, so you can start using the mounts you get right away.

With those points in mind, you're ready to tackle the massive run.

For how to go about it, first, you'll want beginner difficulty. It makes it easier and difficulty has no bearing on your goals for doing this (Achievement points and a stupid elephant). Second, only play skirmishes, nothing else. Skirmishes are the quickest battles to do as you can just rush the commander and lop off his head. Finally, don't forget to save. Koei gave us a small mercy here and allows a person to save in between battles so they don't have to do it all in one setting. It also helps protect the run in case something happens like a power outage or a glitch (I personally had one battle where I spawned in white nothingness, unable to do anything but quit). I suggest saving every 3-5 battles to be on the safe side.

Following all that, it should take a couple hours to do all 100 battles, including load and menu times.
