You get this achievement after completing the 'digging out the fox' mission.

This took me a couple of attempts to complete but I found the following helped:

Don't let any one element of your forces get too far ahead on their own - tanks will get anhilated by the anti-tank guns, and infantry will be destroyed by tanks if this does happen.

Do make sure you wipe out the armour base by the lake on your way to your main objective - otherwise it will produce armour behind you.

*Spolier*

Your main target is a ruse, once you've destroyed it you have to hold the town for 4 minutes and can be attacked from every direction. Set your forces up to defend the town before destroying the base, using tanks, infantry and an AT gun on each road in - this will have you in position a but quicker which keeps more of your troops alive.

When the attacks come my infantry kept backing off so you will need to keep moving them back into position to defend your AT units.

Keep using the spy ruse on that region to see whats happening - towards the end of the 4 minutes move some of your North Western infantry up to the AT guns in the NW as you will need to destroy these as an opbective once the 4 minutes are up. I also sent my tanks from that road up to destroy the base above them - this stopped it spawning more infantry.

Once the 4 minutes are up get your AT guns set up just north of the town - a tiger will spawn from north and slightly east, and the game kicks up a big fuss about it. However by the time the game had finished it's spiel my 4 ATs placed in the north had wiped it out for now loss.

After this its pretty much mopping up. Keep your troops close together - I found having the AT guns on my west flank with the infantry next to them gave the Americans the support they needed and advanced all my tanks together to flank the germans in the east for the british and Ping. Mission accomplished, achievement unlocked. I think I lost just a couple of tanks and 1 or 2 infantry units doing it this way.
