In addition to the other posts that regard strategy and tactics, in this solution I will discuss the REAL requirements for this achievement.

Did you finally beat that last level on veteran and not see the cheevo pop? I did, and nearly went insane. This was because about midway through my run on veteran I went back to the first few levels on easy, just to clean up a few achievements.Then continued my previous game on veteran.

It is crucial to know that the game does NOT save the highest difficulty you completed, but rather the MOST RECENT difficulty. So if you beat a level on veteran, then went back to do it on easy before finishing the campaign, it will save as being completed on EASY.

Good news if the achievement doesn't pop after the ending of the final level, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REPLAY THE ENTIRE GAME ON VETERAN. All you have to do is go back, re-do the levels on veteran that you went back for on easy, then you must REPLAY the final mission on veteran for it to unlock. I can confirm this because I did it myself.

This is why I highly recommend that you play straight through the game on veteran, get the achievement, then go back to clean up the others. Don't get impatient like I did.

The only time the achievement will ever pop is after the last level on veteran difficulty. I hope that helps those of you this happened to. If you do this, your patience will be rewarded with that glorious 150 and a great ratio.
