I have added all my individual guides for the codex entry achievements into one massive guide here. Some important notes which I will add also:
- Field Manuals save after being picked up so you can leave the mission without getting worried you need to get it again. There are 66 of them to collect.
- Once a challenge has been completed you can simply leave to game and it will save.
- The Bloody April challenge in Total War seems to be glitched for some people. If it doesn't stay unlocked after completing it simply complete all other challenges and come back to this one to get the Master of Adaptation achievement/trophy.
- Field Manuals have been given separate videos mission by mission in order to help the trophy/achievement hunter following the guide and make it easier on them.

Chapter: Fog Of War

Guiding Bess - Get through the forest without being detected.
To get this one you need to make your way through the entire Forrest area without being detected. This will require melee and stealth and will cancel out the 'Forest Combat' challenge. Make sure you are using lures to drag enemies away for easier kills. You can have an enemy reach red bar but if he alerts his friends then you need to restart the checkpoint.

Forest Combat - Get through the forest without any melee kills.
This one can be done by simply running and gunning through the areas, just don't kill any enemies with melee. This will cancel out 'Guiding Bess'.

Chapter: Breakdown

Stealing Tanks - Retrieve all the engine components undetected in breakdown.
To get this Codex Entry you will need to enter the town and retrieve all 4 Spark Plugs from the dismantled tanks without being spotted. This is actually very easy if you know enemy patrol patterns since they don't change all that much. When you start the mission go to the first windmill and grab the silenced sniper, this will be your friend for the level. Kill the 4 enemies at the first outpost then take the spark plug. Enter the second outpost (Right Side) and throw a bullet, this will kill distract the enemies making it so you can walk straight in and grab the plug. Now head down the street and go around the side and you can sneak in and grab the third plug (a bullet may be needed). Now head across the water and snipe the sniper in the windmill then head up to where the destroyed tank is and throw a bullet which will make the enemy walk away and you can grab the spark plug.
