A couple of notes before we get into the meat of this solution:
1. This achievement is missable
2. This achievement will not pop until the end credits

Also, I will try to avoid plot points but please be aware that this solution might include some minor spoilers.

Okay, so you will arrive in Einartoft toward the end of Chapter 4. Here you will have some conversations and do a couple of battles. After this, Chapter 5 will start.

Chapter 5 will start with a story sequence elsewhere before you once again have control in Einartoft. Follow the steps below to get the achievement:

1. You will have 3 options in the town - Destroy Bridge, Fight on the Bridge, and Leave. If you don't see "Fight on the Bridge" then visit the Great Hall and it should appear after a conversation here.

2. Day 1 - Select Fight on the Bridge - When the options appear select either to Fight or to treat the wounded. If you select to fight then you will have to do a battle so keep that in mind. If you treat the wounded you will not have to do a battle,

3. Day 2 - Select Fight on the Bridge (again) - Now again, make a choice. Either clear the bodies or choose to fight. If you are trying to keep Egil alive then choose to fight!

4. Day 3 - You will now have to fight a battle. The battle is pretty easy. I used the two Varls, the mender, two archers and Rook.

5. After this you will see a cutscene where Iver convinces the Varl leader that the bridge should be destroyed. Great! You did it - now you can select the option to Destroy the Bridge from the town.

6. After a few more chapters you will complete the game. This achievement will pop during the credits.

If you have any further comments or advice, please comment and I'll update the guide.
