Date: Sep 4, 1944 Place: Bridge over the Maas river, North of Liege
Historic background: September, 1944. The Allies begin a rapid advance over Belgium. A strong determination leads the Allied command: to cross the Rhine. Preparations for Operation Market Garden are being arranged.
Objectives: As the German forces retreat behind the Sigfried Line, they will try to demolish the bridge over the Maas river, north of Liege, in order to block the way of Allied troops. Your mission will be to avoid the blow-up at all costs.
Tactical advice: Officer, this is a very delicate operation, so listen carefully. The enemy has placed some explosive devices in the bridge. Every one of them has one enemy sapper in charge. Their orders are to keep a close watch on each other and detonate their devices if anything suspicious happens. Therefore, you'll have to do away with them almost simultaneously. Once you've done this, escape this way. I want that bridge intact, officer.

- This is the only mission that allows the Spy to drive a truck since the driver is not present in this mission. In fact, this is the only way to block the bridge in order to not let the enemy Sapper get into the detonator.
