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.

War Story: Friends In High Places
Chapter: Test Flight

To Be Ace - Finish the target practice in test flight.
This is story based and can't be missed.

The Dicta Boelcke - Don't lose the trail during the chase in test flight.
There are 2 times that this will happen. The first will be when you need to just follow the plane a white circle will pop up on the screen. DON'T LOOSE THIS CIRCLE. You MUST stay right next to him otherwise this will fail and you will need to reload checkpoint. The second time he will start flying and using more movement so you need a perfect balance of speed and throttle to make sharp turns. The more that you push forward on the left thumb stick the faster you will go but the harder it is to turn so pull back a little bit to make those sharp turns easier. After the second time this will unlock.

Chapter: Total War
Strategic Bombing - Destroy the fort in Total War.
This will be story based so complete the mission and it will unlock.

Bloody April 1917 - Have at least four bombers survive a bombing run in Total War.
This is actually very simple. Rather then attacking the planes as Wilson will tell you to, head down and destroy the anti air trucks as these will cause massive amounts of damage to your bombers. After destroying them quickly you should have 4 left so if the bombers aren't near the fort by then quickly go kill some planes, however if they are near it you can just sit back and watch the codex pop as they drop the bombs.

Chapter: Fall From Grace
No Man's Land - Reach no man's land undetected in Fall From Grace.
I personally was able to just sprint from start to finish without being spotted but if you would like to tank it more slowly then make sure that you are using your lures which you should be properly introduced to at the start of this mission. Credit to 'Ps4Trophies' for the video guide:

Booby Traps - Use tripwire bombs to kill 2 enemies in Fall From Grace.
From the spawning area follow the road and you will find a box that contains a trip-mine grenade inside it, pick this up. Now that you have the trip-mine, continue down the path and you will see 2 enemies near a fire, these are the guys we are going to kill. Sneak up behind them and quickly plant a trip-mine at each of their feet then run! This should see both blow up and the codex entry will unlock.

France - Defending Home - Collect all field manuals in Fall From Grace.
0:00 - Field Manual 1
0:25 - Field Manual 2
1:05 - Field Manual 3
1:30 - Field Manual 4
2:12 - Field Manual 5

Chapter: Forte et fidele
Gotha Raids on London - Take down the bombers in Forte et fidele.
This is story progress so you won't miss this.

Airborne Cannons - Destroy 10 aircraft within 30 seconds using the stationary weapon in Forte et fidele.
This can be quite difficult depending on how the planes react towards you (took me 6 tries to get it) but this can be started when you get control of the turret on top of the Zeppelin. Simply shoot 10 enemy planes out of the air within 30 seconds of your first kill and this will pop. Enemy ships have sort of a pattern, three will instantly spawn in-front, one will fly past you, a few more will fly in from in-front of you then 3 enemy bombers will fly in, here is my video showing how I got it & I have included another video showing an actual fully detailed guide!

Jousting With Dragons - Collect the Field Manual in Forte et fidele.
0:00 - Field Manual 1

Dawn of Dogfights - Complete Friends In High Places.
Just watch the final cutscene and you get this.
