Arguably the hardest aspect to this game will be the achieving the 5 and 10 heroic victories on 5 and 10 different missions in one playthrough. Heroic difficulty for starters is the best rating you can receive upon completing a mission. What contributes to rating? This:

Number of shots hit compared to number of shots fired
Number of unharmed to the number of wounded to the number of killed
Number of enemies killed
Number of turns to complete the mission (the more turns the less likely for a high rating)

IMPORTANT! Please note that these 5/10 wins need to be done in one campaign playthrough which is 21 missions long. If you do not get 5/10 heroic victories in one playthrough you will need to do another playthrough in order to get 5/10 new missions to the Heroic ranking.

But which missions are best/easiest to do in order to get these heroic ratings? It's up in the air. Some people are much better at the stealth missions (I personally hated them and simply rushed--hard through them). Get a good feel which missions you are best at, and just plan ahead. Notice the different symbols on the map when you are moving onto the next mission.

The Deadly Dog definitely provided some pointers that I like to add upon.

After trial and error, I was able to figure out a few good ways to almost guarantee "Heroic Victory" not including the infiltration missions. It makes sense given General Patton's track record in WW2.

Do the following:
1. Complete the mission with as few turns as possible.
2. Keep all your men and vehicle(s) alive. They can be close to death and you still got a decent chance of getting Heroic victory. I had three guys wounded, healed two of them with a medic and still got it.
3. Kill a lot of Germans while finishing the mission promptly (usually around 20+ soldiers and armored units on most of the early missions.)
4. Put it on a lower difficulty (Rookie or less), the Germans are easier to kill this way.
5. If you want to go for heroic victory in sabotage missions, make sure your guys don't get shot and try to finish in fewer than 17 turns (Did it in 16 turns w/o anybody getting shot).

Don't do the following:
1. Pick up ANY ammo refill or health pack, every time I did, I screwed myself out a Heroic victory.
2. Finish the mission with a dead man and/or vehicle, you will instantly screw yourself out a Heroic victory.
3. Worry about your lousy shooting percentage, I doubt it make much of a difference in getting a Heroic victory.
4. Believe that you need to have it on the hardest difficulty to get a Heroic victory. I got mines on Rookie difficulty.

As Deadly Dog stated already, it must be done in Campaign and in the same play through.

BTW, snipers and rangers are your best guys in the game. Rangers for close combat. Snipers for long-range kills and scouting. If you feel lucky, you don't need to always trust the range limit of your guys when aiming at a enemy, I had snipers kill a enemy soldier from 30+ meters away and their max limit was 23 meters, usually. Use them correctly and your chances of kicking Nazi ass will be much better.
