CAUTION: If you can't fight for a faction this is most likely due to you following the main quest line before siding with a faction.

Just continue and make a peace treaty (Main Quest) between the Legion and the Stormcloaks.
- If you side with the Stormcloaks then Markarth must remain an Imperial city and you will be guided to take Fort Sungard fairly early on. After capturing the fort the achievement will pop.
- If you side with the Imperials then Riften must remain a Stormcloak city and you will be told to capture Fort Greenway.
Upon completing the main quest the two dominant factions will reignite the war once again allowing you to gain your achievements.

To join the Legion travel to Solitude and enter Castle Dour and speak to General Tullis.
To join the Stormcloaks travel to Windhelm and enter the Palace of the Kings and speak to Ulfric Stormcloak.

This achievement is for following either side's story-line and capture the opposing
side's capital. Which is either Solitude or Windhelm depending on who you side with.

I'm not being lazy here it's just that there are many variables to the quest lines that would make this guide far too unorganized

Legion Questline;

Stormcloak Questline;
