After the Battle of Normandy, Taylor and his squad were ordered to clear a town at the foot of Hill 400 at Bergstein. The next mission is to attack the hill, where the player must clear the bunkers full of Germans. In the next mission, Taylor and other Rangers are ordered to defend the bunker near the top of Hill 400 where they were heavily barraged by German infantry and artillery which killed Pvt. Braeburn and were attacked by two waves of German Forces. After heavy fighting, American P-51 Mustangs helped them by bombing the German's and their Tiger Tanks, who then the surviving German troops retreated. At the end of the campaign, the 2nd Ranger Battalion reached the Rhine River. After the battle in the Rhine, Colonel Blake appears and asks Sgt. Randall whether he would like to be a Lieutenant.
