To unlock this achievement, as it says, beat The Battle for Caen mission on Veteran difficulty.

The hardest part would have to be securing and taking over the German headquarters in this mission. I found no easy way to do this, just TAKE YOUR TIME and use cover. I used a riffle with a backup automatic to finally win this one.

Use the riffle for those long range kills and switch to the automatic when in close quarters.

There is a small house to the left, clear that out first (you will get a check point) before moving on to the HQ. This will make things much better and you need all the check points as possible!

After you clear out the small left house you can work your way inside the HQ building. I advise switching to your riffle and take out the enemies on the stairs and the bottom floor first.

After that your not out of the clear yet. You will turn your main focus upstairs to the right and left. I found more to the left however there is a fair amount of them to the right. Use grenades to clear some parts (lob them around corners works for me!).

Here are some general tips:

- Cover is your friend. Don't be afraid to kill enemies but don't stay out of cover for too long and never stand in the open. Take cover and use it well. Always take cover when reloading. It only takes 2-3 hits to die not to mention getting sniped. If your flashing red TAKE COVER.

- Your team members, or mates, comrades, or meat shields (whatever you want to call them) are GREAT most of the time. They will take out numerous enemies and keep you well protected as long as you take cover and let them do the good deed of dying for country. If they are not advancing then you must do it, there are several times it pays to advance some and once you see them coming drop back. They also raid house pretty well (the bottom floor most of the times).

- In open areas with gun fire use smoke grenades. Also in open areas the best weapon to use is either riffles or snipes.

- In close areas (read raiding houses) use real grenades, they are the best weapon). Also equip yourself with anything that is an automatic.

- Many times if you get stuck try to go a different way or take different types of cover in different positions. There are defiantly different ways to make it through this game.
