This achievement is unlocked by loading up your main Shadow of War save file and traveling to Lithlad, then conquering the fortress there.
You can make this much easier on yourself in a number of ways:
1. Complete the Warchief missions first so that they won't be present during the attack and their upgrades will be disabled.
2. Create command your captains to become spy warchiefs.
3. Command your captains to be bodyguards for the overlord. They will attack him during the fight. I gave him 8 of my captains, and it was just sad to watch. This is a new feature with recent updates.

Now, the biggest reason that I am creating this guide is that this achievement is known to be incredibly buggy! Today I found a solution to work around this achievement not unlocking. It is rather labor intensive, however, so you may just want to hope and pray that Monolith will patch this...
I have no faith in game devs. Not after Mafia 3.

If this achievement is broken for you, here is how to fix it.
1. Delete your main game from within the game's main menu.
2. Manage your game from the dashboard, and delete all save data for your profile. Please note, I recommend doing all other achievements first.
3. Play through the game until you conquer Nurnen. At this point, all maps, including Lithlad, will be unlocked.
4. You will likely be underleveled. Kill all warchiefs, and build and army. I recommend using any Orcs you may have in the garrison from the many free chests you will probably have gotten.
5. BEFORE YOU CONQUER THE FORTRESS!!!! Close your game, fully shut off your console and clear the cache by unplugging the power from the back of your console, and from the wall. Wait 5 minutes before plugging it back in, then power up the console.
6. Conquer the fortress. The achievement should pop after selecting a new overlord and returning to the open world.

Good luck and I hope this helps a few people out there.
